Maronite Monks of Adoration

A friend mentioned this community in a recent letter.

Maronites are members of the Eastern branch of the Catholic church who have parts of their liturgy in Aramaic. Being attracted to things Eastern, as evidenced here, here, and here, I am a little bit jealous of these monks right now.

At any rate, their vocation video is absolutely beautiful, and well worth watching.

After watching that, although I know speculation is vain, I think that if I did not have my heart set on the Dominican Order, I might easily find myself wondering why there is no monastery of Maronite Nuns of Adoration for me to join.

As it is, I hope and pray to be accepted as a postulant to my Dominican monastery, even while I rejoice at the unity and diversity of all the orders in the Catholic Church. Indeed, the word "Catholic" suddenly has a new depth of meaning for me!

Blessed be God forever, for ages unending, amen!
