The Monks Monastery

             As the Carmelites become crowded in their present family home, the New Mount Carmel Foundation is compelled to assist the monks in living the fullness of the Carmelite life in a real monastic environment of mountain solitude. While the monks are very contented in their present poverty, Fr. Daniel Mary is admittedly under the tremendous burden of providing for the formation of his sons.  The Board of Directors desires to assist Father Daniel by raising the funds from disparate sources to begin construction of a permanent monastery for the Carmelite community.

            The Carmelite Monastery will be a school in the Lord’s service where young men will live the fullness of their contemplative vocations for the benefit of Holy Church.  One can simply imagine the many levels of prayer that will be happening within the monastery walls where the lay brothers kneel at the sound of the bell to pray the Our Father, while the choir monks process to the church to intone the psalms of the Liturgy of the Hours and the solitary hermits in the silence of the wilderness kneel quietly before their private altars to pray the Divine Office.  What a magnificently powerful vision!

            The proposed monastery for the Carmelite Monks will be constructed of simple, durable materials that will last for generations.  Indicative of the monks’ traditional manner of living and their monastic roots in the middle ages, the monastery will be designed in a classical, gothic style.  Gothic architecture possesses the wonderful quality being at once simple, void of ornateness and elaborate artwork, yet beautiful and transcending.  Much like the hidden life of the Wyoming Carmelites, gothic architecture pierces the very heavens as if beckoning for the blessings of God and the intercession of the saints.

           St. Teresa St. Teresa of Jesus, like St. Francis of Assisi and many other saints, insisted that while the monastery should be simple, the church should be fitting for our Divine King.  The monastic church, therefore, will be the central focus of the entire monastery.  The church will be surrounded by the common buildings and separate hermitages of the monks that are designed to provide what is necessary for monastic observance and to last for the years to come.

            The New Mount Carmel Foundation is excited to proceed with this historically significant undertaking as we “build something beautiful for God” and for this extraordinary community of Carmelite Monks. 

 

           As professional businessmen, the Directors of the New Mount Carmel Foundation are mindful that every one of us wants to leave his mark in this world. In the last one hundred years, similar projects have only been undertaken a handful of times; this is a unique opportunity to impact the lives of thousands upon thousands, perhaps even millions of souls.  The construction of a gothic monastery requires courage and, yes extensive resources too.  The New Mount Carmel Foundation is seeking magnanimous and generous souls to assist in realizing the Lord’s vision here.  When we simply consider the magnificent monasteries of Europe and the patrons who built these glorious edifices that stand still today, we realize that the patrons of a monastery are people of deep faith.  By their generosity the patrons of old not only provided for us by building monasteries to house monks and nuns to pray for the generations to come, but they also built a worthy dwelling place for our Eucharistic Lord.  It is no wonder that the present monks and nuns now living in the ancient monasteries of Europe continue to pray for the repose of the souls of their founding patrons.  The Monks of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel will do likewise! 

           We each must one day breathe forth our last breath and render an account to the Lord.  Wouldn’t it be a wonderful thing if Jesus told us on that day that we built His house and the house of His servants by helping to fund a New Mount Carmel of America?  When we ponder the generations and generations of vocations that shall be fulfilled within the monastery’s walls and the countless Holy Masses that shall be offered within the Church, what would we not give to see the Foundation’s vision realized? We hope that God may be calling you to this great work for surely the Lord has indescribable graces and blessings in store for those generous souls who help His religious..
