Newly professed

 On this Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, congratulations are in order for three monks (THREE!), who today professed solemn and perpetual vows as monks of Saint Meinrad Archabbey. These are Br. Peduru Fonseka, Br. James Jensen, and Br. William Sprauer (kneeling, left to right, in the photo above). It has been quite some time since we’ve had three make solemn vows all at once.

To read more about these three, click here. To see photos from the ceremony itself (and moments both before and after), click here.

Please keep Br. Peduru, Br. James, and Br. William in your prayers. Pray as well for all the monks of this archabbey, that they may be sustained by God's grace in their monastic prayer and work, and for an increase of vocations to our way of life.

"Uphold me O Lord, according to your promise,
and I shall live.
And do not confound me
in my expectation."

Solemn profession formula
(Psalm 119:16)
