An Invisible Monastery to Pray for Vocations

Have you ever heard of the Invisible Monastery?  Well, until a month ago I hadn't either.  On this 50th World Day of Prayer for Vocations I thought it a wonderful occasion to tell you about it. Several weeks ago I received a letter in the mail with a very interesting return address. The sender was "Invisible Monastery".  I was delighted to see it is an endeavor to promote continuous prayer for an increase of priestly and religious vocations founded by our good friend at Vianney Vocations.

I hope you will visit the Invisible Monastery and pledge to pray for vocations. When I registered last week there were less than 5 other persons who had registered in the Diocese of Owensboro.  We need more registrants!

Here is a link to today's message for the World Day of Prayer for Vocations by Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI.  A very inspiring meditation written before his retirement.

I dislike writing blog posts without photos - enjoy these photos taken yesterday!

Fence repair - fence needed to keep out the deer. Wood and blocks needed to keep out the rabbits and mice. Did you know mice like broccoli leaves?
