An Australian monk in the making - a special prayer request!


Former West Australian Peter Castieau is today (24 May US time) making his vows to enter the novitiate at Carmel in Wyoming, and on Pentecost Sunday will receive the full habit and his new name.

Please keep him in your prayers - he is on retreat until the vigil of Pentecost. And if I've interpreted the note I receive correctly, he is front row, second from the right in the picture above.

If you aren't familiar with these wonderful traditional Carmelite monks (yes, monks not friars), do go and take a look at their site. Reportedly, their 'mystic monk' brand coffee is to die for!
