On the feast of his namesake, St. Elias, our Br. Elias of Our Lady of Mount Carmel professed perpetual vows of obedience, chastity, and poverty unto death in the hands of Fr. Prior. Br. Elias' perpetual profession was attended by family and friends visiting from out-of-state for a very special day of celebration and rejoicing to see Brother dedicate his life to God in selfless love. Congratulations Br. Elias from the entire Board of Directors!
With Br. Luke's profession just a few short days ago and now Br. Elias' profession of vows, we find ourselves marveling at God's Providence in calling together this band of brothers here in Wyoming where these young men are able to persevere in an all-together heavenly, ancient manner of living after the example of the Carmelite saints.
In these difficult times in which we are living, it is a marvelous consolation to know that there are men who readily dedicate their lives to prayer on behalf of us all. May God graciously pour down his blessings upon Br. Elias and each and every Carmelite in this powerful house of prayer!
