“If you hear his voice today…”
Rule of St. Benedict, Prologue 10
Congratulations are in order for Br. Stephen Avery (formerly known as Novice John), and Br. Lorenzo Peñalosa (formerly known as Novice Charles), who professed their temporary vows on Thursday this week, the Feast of the Transfiguration. You can read more about them by clicking here.
In addition, the monastic community of Saint Meinrad Archabbey welcomes a new novice who was invested on Wednesday with the monastic scapular—Tony Wolniakowski.
Through the intercession of Our Lady of Einsiedeln, our Holy Father St. Benedict, and St. Meinrad, may God confirm and strengthen all three in their discernment of the monastic way of life.
We now have six junior monks in temporary vows and six novices. Another candidate is expected to join us in the fall. Keep praying for additional vocations to this house—and for those of us already here!
