Pray for the Carmelites

Please read these recent news articles and keep the Carmelites in your prayers: 


"I urge my brother Bishops, priests, and above all the faithful laity to raise their voices against the destruction of Convents of contemplative life and traditional religious Communities. It is necessary to give not only spiritual and moral support, but also material and media support to the victims of an attack that has been getting worse in recent weeks after the promulgation of the Motu Proprio Traditionis Custodes, so that the persecuted religious sisters may be defended and those who are responsible for this persecution that is hateful in the eyes of God and the entire ecclesial community may be exposed."
+ Carlo Maria Viganò, Archbishop
Former Apostolic Nuncio to the United States

God bless and protect Archbishop Viganò!

  1. Yes, definitely keep them in your prayers! They're in my diocese and we have reaped so many good fruits from them!

  2. It has taken me until now to even find the words for a comment on this tragic and terrible situation, this persecution of these Christians. Even so, words fail. I cannot comment on something that is so incomprehensible and so clearly not of God, so, in tears,I repeat- God bless and protect Archbishop Vigano! And God bless and protect these holy Carmelites!
