To Lead Others Into the Arms of Jesus

We had a Norbertine priest from St. Michael's Abbey in California visit us last week. Here is an amazing video that introduces the community. It is excellent.


St. Michael's Abbey is a community of Norbertine Canons Regular in Orange County, California, dedicated to preserving the time-honored traditions of the Catholic Church for the last 900 years, fostering a vibrant Christ-centered culture via the sacraments, and forming the priests of tomorrow through common life, common prayer and education. St. Michael's Abbey continues to grow quickly, ten-fold since its inception. It now numbers over 70 priests and seminarians.

Members of the abbey live a monastic life, that includes following the Rule of St. Augustine, chanting of the Divine Office and Mass every day along with an active apostolate. The abbey's principal apostolate is its preparatory school, a boys' boarding school (9-12) focused on forming the Catholic leaders of tomorrow. The priests are also involved in parish work, retreats and writing and translation of spiritual books.
Tip 'o the hat to John.

Beautiful Marcel. A ex-catholic just gave me the line that I cannot get to heaven on my mother's religion. I know she is being mislead. My mother's religion is so beautiful. God Bless.

How wonderful to see you post this video of St. Michael's! I visit St. Michael's frequently and my oldest son will attend High School there this fall. St. Michael's is just 15 minutes up the road and to say that these priest's presence here in Orange County is a blessing is an understatement. They are definitely saving souls...
