Wyoming Carmelite monks release new CD honoring Mary
Published: December 29, 2005
LA CROSSE, Wis. (CNS) -- The few lonely highways stretching toward the eastern edge of the Rocky Mountains in northwest Wyoming used to be the only way to reach the Monks of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel and hear their beautiful chants. But now, thanks to modern technology and the release of their new CD, "Mystical Chants of Carmel," the monks have opened up their cloister in Clark, Wyo., with 14 chants dedicated to the Blessed Mother. "I figured that since the people couldn't come to our Mass, we could share our liturgy with the world," said Father Daniel Mary of Jesus Crucified, prior of the monastery, told The Catholic Times, newspaper of the La Crosse Diocese.
