.- A young, rapidly growing vibrant community has recently released a new CD in hopes of raising funds for a permanent Priory.  The CD, which provides a "window" into the monastic comunity of the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of the Apostles, includes Latin, traditional and original compositions by the sisters.

The Benedictines of Mary, located in St. Joseph, Missouri "pray and sacrifice in order that priests become more holy." Additionally, they make sacred vestments and when their Priory is built, will have a permanent place for priests to make retreats.

There are 24 tracks on their CD including Latin, traditional and original compositions by the sisters. One track, "My Mercy," is an original composition by a Benedictine of Mary written for Bishop Robert Finn.

"I asked our musician to try to write a piece that His Excellency could easily learn by rote," Mother Therese told the Key, "something to help him pray when he is burdened by the crush of the day." It was written for Bishop Finn on the 28th Anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood. It's both quite beautiful and "catchy."

The CD is for sale at their website for $20. It makes an excellent Christmas present and also helps this community, very close to Bishop Finn's heart, build a permanent home.
