From Mother Cecilia, abbess:
“… We are building a second monastery to honor St. Joseph, just north of the Arkansas border in Ava, MO. We are also planning to build the National Father’s Shrine on the grounds of the monastery, a place where living, deceased, physical or spiritual fathers and father figures may be honored. We have just made a video about the entire project, and are wondering if you would be willing to display or link to it on your blog.”
They have some amazing plans to help provide room for their growing community with architectural beauty galore.
This is from The Benedictines of Mary Queen of Apostles, who also put out a series of records that topped the classical charts. I have all their albums, and they get played repeatedly during the liturgical season they are for.
The name of the city they are building immediately brought this to my mind: “Ava Missouri, gratia plena, Dóminus tecum.”
