Today, we issued a press release announcing the exciting news that the monks of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel will now be remembering all intentions submitted through our website (http://www.thecatholictruth.info/). I am very excited about this news as it adds a new dimension to the prayer of our apostolate. The text of the press release follows:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Cinnaminson, New Jersey (February 18, 2009) – The Catholic Truth lay apostolate is pleased to announce that the monks of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel will now be remembering all submitted prayer intentions in their prayers, works and penance. Everyone is encouraged to visit The Catholic Truth website (www.thecatholictruth.info) and submit any intentions through the home page. There are no requirements or fees and all submissions are anonymous.
Catholic Truth founder Gary Zimak is excited that the monks have agreed to this association. “In the three months that we’ve been in existence, prayer requests have been an important part of our apostolate. We have been praying faithfully for all submitted intentions. We will continue to do so, but now we’ll be joined by a group of men who devote their entire lives to prayer and penance.” Zimak emphasized that the main reason he chose this group of monks is due to their professed loyalty to the Magisterium of the Church. He adds, “One of the founding principles of The Catholic Truth is total submission to the Holy Father and the Magisterium, so we consider it Divine Providence that we discovered this order of monks who publicly profess the same belief.”
The Carmelite Monks Of The Most Blessed Virgin Mary Of Mount Carmel are located in Cody, Wyoming and are seeking donations for a new monastery to house their growing community. For more information or to make a donation, please visit their website at www.carmelitemonks.org.
