Video: These Nuns Sing Together Eight Times A Day -- And It Shows

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 12/19/14

Behind the recording of the "Advent in Ephesus" CD by the Benedictines of Mary

The Benedictines of Mary live a life hidden from the world. They gather seven times a day and once during the night to chant the Divine Office of the Church, and to sing. Although their main apostolate is sewing vestments and making altar cloths, music is an integral part of their communal life. Recording CDs is a way for the sisters to share their life with others, to bring them joy, and help lift them up to God. This video is about the making of their "Advent in Ephesus" CD" and gives a glimpse of the beautiful life of the Benedictines of Mary.
