A reader sent us the following. We urge any assistance possible to the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles -- a special group of nuns close to our hearts:
The Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles are running a Novena of Latin Masses in honor of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus which will be offered at their Priory. Here is what they have posted on their website:A Sacred Heart Novena of Traditional Latin Masses according to the 1962 Roman Missal (extraordinary form) will be offered for THE SANCTIFICATION OF ALL FAMILIES (or persons) enrolled in the Novena.The nine Masses will begin with the Feast of the Sacred Heart on June 12th and will conclude on June 20th.The suggested donation is $15 for each enrollment which includes an enrollment card sent to each family (or person) enrolled.
Besides the spiritual benefits coming from such a Novena, the community of 25 Nuns (with a median age of 28!) would greatly appreciate a generous participation as the proceeds will help them expand their Priory to accommodate the many young Postulants who are entering this year.
