Young single men, you should move to Italy May 6, 2010

Posted by Tantumblogo in awesomeness, Dallas Diocese, General Catholic, North Deanery.

Alot of people have a fantasy of quitting the world and starting over in some quiet, faraway place.  While alot of people may think of a tropical paradise for such a fantasy, others might find a tranquil mountain setting equally ideal.  Have I got a place for you!  How about Norcia, Italy, the town where both St. Benedict and his sister, St. Scholastica were born?!?

All kidding aside, some Benedictines have re-instituted the Monastery that once existed in this well known Catholic town.  After a 200 year absence, there is now a growing and vibrant community here.  And, a young man from the diocese is presently a monk there.  What a holy calling.  Yes, many of us are called to the vocation of marriage, and still others need to work in the world, but the world and the Church need people who are dedicated completly to a life of prayerful service to Christ, a life completly turned over to the the contemplation of Him.  And, they have a wonderful and increasingly capable Chant choir, and have Vespers and Mass online daily! 

Check out the video below.  We  must pray for many more vocations from totally dedicated young men – the Church and the world are in desparate need of them.
