On this feast of the Mother of Our Lord I pass on this story from the Missionaries of Africa about a new
Benedictine Abbey of sisters in Zambia.
Let us pray for them and our own sisters at Minster.
Mary Queen and Gate of Heaven, pray for them.
Saint Benedict and Saint Scholastica, pray for them.
Saint Mildred, pray for them.
Lord God, we ask you to bless these your servants and keep them dedicated to you. Amen.
