Oblate Program at Belmont Abbey, NC

July-August Newsletter Posted



The July-August Newsletter is posted to the web and has been mailed to the Oblates on the mailing list.

This month's edition includes the revised Prayers of Intercessions for the Divine Office. Oblates are free to use the Office of their choosing to fulfill the obligation for prayer. Each form of the Office has its own set of intercessions. The cited set of intercessions are offered to the Oblates as another option. Why another set of intercessions? Several reasons but the most important one is to encourage unity of prayer for the Abbey and the Benedictine community at large. These are not required nor are they considered complete but it is hoped that you will find them useful. From time to time they will be revised as needed.

The intercessions follow a two week cycle and are meant to be used in lue of the intercessions in the Liturgy of the Hours. Vespers usually ends with: Remember Fr. (Br.) N. who passed from this life, ... The person to be mentioned here is in the newsletter for the month.
