Many of you reading this post may wonder how it is that this beautiful monastery shall be built! We assure that it is not because the Carmelite Monks or our Foundation have stored up a treasury of wealth, rather much to the contrary we are building by faith. Each and every gift that we receive is protected for its sacred purpose to see this house of God built lest young men be turned away.
As we write, the Foundation's accounts are once again drained, having just purchased this mountain property for which we had saved pennies, nickles and dimes over a very long time. Now we reach out to you, our dear friends and co-workers in this holy endeavor and seek your support that we may move forward.
The Board of Directors are men of faith who trust in the Lord. We do not worry when we find our accounts dwindling, but rather take comfort in the treasury that is ours in the Infant of Prague.
If you are able to spare a little extra this month, please do not delay in sending your contribution as it comes needed now. As you have read, the monastery's architectural work is proceeding at full pace, along with the engineering, road construction and everything else necessary to break ground this coming spring.
We also want to reassure you that your donation is safe with us and is only used for the construction of the monastery and all the work necessary to accomplish the building of this house of prayer. We recently had a secular newspaper in Billings describe this Foundation as an efficient and purpose-driven entity that has allotted its funds in the correct way for the purpose it was created. This is a great compliment and very humbling to the Board since we made our financial history available for scrutiny.
What we are trying to say is that if you help us, you can be certain that your dollars are going directly to the aid of the Carmelite Monks that this holy order may continue to grow, prosper and sanctify the world for literally a thousand years to come in this solitary monastery in Wyoming's Rockies.
