CBS Sunday Morning Interviews The Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles

This is just wonderful. Really. It's pretty rare that I'll send you over to a mainstream media news broadcast. This is the exception.

The Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles, a secluded group of nuns living in the farmlands north of Kansas City, have become the unlikely rock stars of traditional classical music.

Check out this video from CBS. The sheer joy of their faces and voices is wonderful.



  1. The one quote Tracy Smith picked out and put on her Twitter feed was, "We don't care about popularity. We care about souls. -Mother Cecilia" NPR also did a fantastic interview with the prioress. I happen to know that she is just as sweet and wonderful as she seems.

  2. When I saw this, it made me laugh at how incredulous the reporter looked when she was asking some of the questions.

  3. Well at least CBS was willing to show this in the first place and it was an openness towards the Faith different from the usual media hostility towards the Faith mostly to the Traditional aspects of it. Good for CBS.

  4. This is a wonderful, traditional cloistered order, and they're all young! God bless them.

  5. Traditional Mass?
    Many young vocations?
    Full habit?
    Better watch out or Pope Francis might need to investigate the order as he is doing with the Franciscans of the Immaculate.
    Can't contradict the narrative that the future of the Church is in more and more Vatican II.

  6. Perhaps this is will touch the heart of Tracy Smith in a profound way. We should pray for that as I am sure the nuns already are.

  7. I'd wager that the LCWR would cringe in horror watching how these nuns live their vocations out of fidelity and love for the Lord and His bride.
