Thursday evening Mass was held in the Abbey Church with Archbishop Joseph Naumann. The Benedictine Community have shown great hospitality to the Life Teen Conference. Each day they have invited us to their Morning Prayer. They have also offered tours of the Abbey Church. The Benedictine hospitality has been seen after Mass each day when the monks offer each student a fresh donut. Mmmm...Benedictine spirituality is very good!

Pray for the Canonization of Blessed William Joseph Chaminade
"A sermon on the protection of Mary may be thus divided; part first, the efficiency of Mary’s protection; part second, the willingness of the heart of Mary to protect us. There is no need of going beyond the mystery of the Visitation to prove both: Mary is both able and willing to protect us."
Blessed William Joseph Chaminade
