We are getting ready to depart for a blessed occasion - Solemn Pontifical Mass for the official opening of the Carmelite Monastery in Canyon.
Rose had the opportunity to visit the Carmel earlier this month. Sodality made a special visit and had the unique opportunity to speak with the Carmelites, removed from the grille. They gave wonderful direction to the young ladies present, including Sparkles.
We are blessed to be a part of this joyous occasion and look forward to sharing when we return.
I am offering the Mass for all the intentions that you have shared (via email, phone, or on your blog).
Ad Jesum per Mariam,
The Carmel of Jesus, Mary and Joseph can be traced back to a sixteenth century Spanish Carmelite Monastery founded by Saint Teresa of Jesus. Two daughter monasteries were established in Mexico. In 1927, the Community established a Carmel in California. Later, a monastery was founded in Las Vegas, Nevada. It was discerned that God was calling them to transfer to the Lincoln Diocese. The Carmel of Jesus, Mary and Joseph near Agnew was dedicated and consecrated on December 14, 2001. The Carmelites devote their lives to prayer, strive to live a life hidden with Christ, and honor the Blessed Virgin Mary.
