On Saturday, 18 June, 2011, feast of Saint Ephrem the Syrian, at the Sacro Speco Monastery in Subiaco, Italy, Benjamin J. Andersen was clothed in the Benedictine novice's habit, becoming Brother Benedict Maria. The monastic rite took place after the Hour of Tierce and before Holy Mass in the magnificent monumental refectory adorned with frescoes from the 15th century.

Brother Benedict and Brother Seraphim are with me in Rome for ADORATIO 2011, an international convocation on Eucharistic Adoration. Thirty-two nations are represented among the participants. Brother Benedict and Brother Seraphim are both actively engaged in the preparation and celebration of the Sacred Liturgy during ADORATIO 2011.


Congratulations on the young brother ! Prayers assured from down in the Missions !

Congratulations av every Blessing to Brother Benedict Maria!

Congratulations Brother. May God Bless your vocation and bring you to deeper and deeper faith and love our Lord. This is great news. Pax Christi Vobiscum.

Congratulations to Brother Benedict, my prayers go out for you in your vocation and calling. Here in the Dallas area we have a wonderful Cistercian Abbey where I like to occasionally attend Mass.

Heartfelt congratulations, Brother Benedict. Our little Secular Discalced Carmelite community in Tulsa prays for you all daily.
