Dear Reading Brethren,
I’ve just added to my right link bar a hyperlink to the Dominican Nuns of Summit, NJ. They are Dominican enclosed nuns (meaning they observe strict cloister and rarely leave their monastery) and they spend most of their time in prayer for the rest of us poor fools. Their main source of income is a gift store that they run, manufacturing soaps, body spray, lip balm, and other similar products. They have a very nice old-fashioned shaving kit on sale which is quite nice. I just purchased gifts for my family this Christmas through them, and I encourage you to do the same! These ladies have lots of vocations and do a lot of praying. All of their products assuredly have lots of prayers behind them, for yourself and your loved ones. They are also of quite good quality and their soaps come with a short story about our Holy Father Dominic.
Don’t hesitate to buy something nice from them (and send in an electronic prayer request on their website!).
Yours in Christ,
Br. James Dominic, OP
PS – The Dominican nuns in my province, the Monastery in Farmington Hills, MI, also can be contacted over the Internet with your prayer requests!
