Le Barroux traditional ordinations

NLM has put up some of the beautiful photos of the recent ordination of Brothers Odon and Hubert of Le Barroux to the priesthood by Cardinal Rode on 26 July, so I thought I'd give you a further selection from Le Barroux's album of the occasion.

Le Barroux, as you can see, practices the traditional monastic tonsure.

And has an absolutely splendid Romanesque style (though modern built) abbey Church.

The sitting on the steps thing is one of the peculiarities of the monastic use.

Rather splendid vestments.

And this gives you a little look at the cloister as well! Oh to be in the South of France right now.....

Please pray for these new priests and their monastery.
