Monastic doings....

Apologies for the break in blogging dear readers, normal transmissions will hopefully resume soon.

In the meantime, a few items that may be of interest.

First the excellent Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles (traditionalist American Benedictine nuns based in Kansas City-St Joseph Diocese) are putting out a new recording of music for Advent through Decca.  You can order it through their website, but do listen to this video that gives a sampler and tells something of their life.  The money will go towards the construction of their monastery.

Secondly, many readers may be familiar with the recordings of the daily Benedictine Office and EF Mass put online by the wonderful American-Italian monks of Norcia, Italy.  You might be interested to read a piece on them written by Cardinal Pell  recently.

Also, you may recall that the monks of Le Barroux recently started livestreaming some of their Office.  Unfortunately, timezones being what they are, livestreaming is not that helpful for us in Oz!  However, help is now at hand, as an American group has obtained permission to put the recordings online for the benefit of those in other timezones.  You can find them here at The Chant of Le Barroux (note the Le Barroux livestreaming isn't working at the moment, but should be restored soon!).

Hmm, so now we just need the nuns to join the party and stream their offices!

Finally, if you haven't had a chance to get the names of your dead in need of prayers on a Mass list, you might think about asking the excellent Sons of the Holy Redeemer to add them to their list.
