Things are moving right along for the Victim Adorers of the Holy Face of Jesus (aka “the Irish Carmelite Hermits”):

On the Feast of the Exultation of the Holy Cross, the Irish Carmelites clothed their first novice, officially marking her passage from secular life to religious:

Sr. Anne Marie of the Sacred Heart.

In November, Bishop Faure will make his first Apostolic Visitation, while in country to consecrate Fr. Ballini’s chapel.

Please continue to pray and support this foundation of contemplatives, of whom Archbishop Lefebvre said:

“Without monasteries, without the examples of the contemplative religious consecrated to the continual praise of God, the Church will never recover from the present crisis.”
