A Brand New Release from the Benedictines of Mary

by | Apr 9, 2013 | Music, Reviews | 9 comments

Remember the beautiful Advent at Ephesus CD I recommended during Advent?  Well, the dear sisters at the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of the Apostles have created another inspiring collection of music featuring 17 English and Latin pieces sung a cappella on the feasts of the holy Saints and angels throughout the year:

Monica from De Montfort Music sent me an email this afternoon asking if I could help promote this new CD.  She described it as “breathtaking” and “so gorgeous that I am certain I have just heard the sounds of Heaven!”  I’m more than happy to share it with you all, and already pre-ordered a copy to give to my mother, who happens to be a Benedictine Oblate, for Mother’s Day on May 13th!  *I hope you’re not reading this mom! 🙂

The funds from the sale of this CD will assist the sisters in alleviating their remaining debt, helping them get closer to building their much needed permanent monastery.  Plus. if the pre-order number is high, this music will be more widely available upon it’s release showing that there is a commercial need/demand for truth and beauty in art.

*Feed readers may need to click through to watch the video.
Angels and Saints at Ephesus, will be released next month on May 7th, but we can help support the sisters by pre-ordering a copy today!

    I just did! But now I think I'd like one myself! I'll have to give me kids a hint for Mother's Day!

    And doesn't my typo make me sound like I type with a lovely Irish brogue? 😉

    It does, and I love it! I had such a difficult time ordering just one copy… I'll have to drop a few hints too! 🙂

    I ordered for myself and got the advent one, too. I guess I missed the post about them at Advent. I'm always looking for real Advent music vs. Christmas! They did sound heavenly. Thanks for the heads up!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
