Welcome to Mount Saint Benedict Monastery

Imagine a place where hospitality and love overflow. You distinctly feel the presence of God. You stand in awe of the beautiful surroundings. That place is Mount Saint Benedict Monastery.

Carol D

For my Grandaughter, Camille D and her ex- Boyfriend, Sebastian D.

Father in heaven, you are our God. You brought Camille's partner and

"soulmate" Sebastian D. and her together. That is why I, (her

Grandmother) boldly come before your throne of grace today, Lord,

asking you to heal their relationship. There has been so much hurt

between Camille D. and Sebastian D. caused by arguments, pride, jealousy,

trust, and the schemes of the enemy. Lord, heal their hearts and

minds. Help them to see themselves as being on the same side, and

not against each other. Wash away any bitterness, hurt, pain, anger

and disappointments, that is in their hearts, with the blood of your

Son, Jesus. Restore their relationship. Grant them an abundance of love, respect, trust, understanding a firm committment of loyalty, and better communication, and the urgent desire to give their relationship a “second chance. Please lead them down the path towards each other. In Jesus Name I Pray. Amen.

Thank and praise God for keeping my parents safe. Can you please urgently pray for healing for my Dad Jay who is ill from Cancer? My Mom who is elderly is taking care of Dad alone with difficulty. Can you please pray for my Mom to be blessed with good health, peace of mind, strength and hope and that she will not worry as she is finding all this very stressful. That a new care giver will come urgently. Please please pray that the new care giver will come and NOT leave us in this desperate time of need. That he will be kind, good and reliable. That he will take good care of Dad and that Dad will get on well with Mom and me and we will not have any problems with him. That the care giver will NOT abandon the patient. That I will be able to join my parents urgently and help them. That I will be able to fly with my current passport without a problem so that I can urgently join my parents. That AY and AN will help Mom and Dad. For the good health, peace of mind, happiness and protection of my dear parents, children and myself. This is a very stressful time for my family. I feel like everything is going wrong and feel so desperate. Thank you and God bless. Amen
