A blessing of a priest

New Toronto priest blesses child May 2012.jpgThe late spring months have a few notable celebrations: the continuation of the Easter Mysteries like the Ascension and Pentecost, Corpus Christi, Mother's and Father's Day, and priesthood celebrations. Nothing moves the heart spiritually, that is, than witnessing the blessing of a newly ordained priest. Here a newly ordained priest of Toronto bestows God's blessing on a little one...

Pray for Mary's intercession for priests....
Laura Adshead.jpgOne of the US's monasteries of Benedictine nuns is getting a lot media attention lately. Regina Laudis Abbey (Bethlehem, CT) is now recognized by the European Catholic press for a story written by Mauro Pianta for the Vatican Insider, "U.S.: Cameron's former lover becomes cloistered nun." Mr. Pianta tells of the UK's Prime Minister David Cameron's former very beautiful girlfriend who found her vocation in the American abbey after a conversion in her life. Sister John Mary known in history as Laura Adshead left the world to follow Christ. Let's note, however, Sister John Mary has been at the Abbey for four years, now. So this story is not exactly new, but it is good to know that smart women still follow the Lord's call.

The original story online at The Daily Mail reveals the story better.

Recently, Regina Laudis has been in the press due to Mother Dolores Hart's new documentary "God is the Bigger Elvis." Mother Dolores will receive the 2012 Christopher Life Achievement Award on May 24th for a film that works to "affirm the highest values of the human spirit."

In my opinion, there are few Benedictine monasteries of women in the USA who are serious about the monastic life, and St Scholastica Priory is one. Women, give this Priory a good look.
