To my esteemed customers,
As I have posted on my other blog, The Slave of the Immaculate, I have requested a dispensation from my vows and will be returning to lay life.
This, of course, has implications for Benedict’s Beads. As some of you may know, I brought this rosary business to St. Benedict’s Abbey as Mediatrix Rosaries and rechristened it Benedict’s Beads. The Abbey has graciously agreed to let me keep the business and the name, since I was the only monk to make and sell the rosaries. You can therefore be assured of the same quality of craftsmanship and care for any rosaries sold as well as a commitment to excellence in all things for the glory of Jesus Christ, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and St. Benedict.
The Abbey has agreed to allow me to offer the Abbey rosary, with an exciting new centerpiece that I will unveil soon. A percentage of the proceeds from the Abbey Rosary will go to support St. Benedict’s Abbey. I will let you all know details as I discuss them with Fr. Maurice, the business manager.
I will be updating the website to reflect the new changes and, once I have registered the business with the state, will resume full, uninterrupted business. I appreciate your patience. I am still accepting timely orders by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not hesitate if you need a rosary soon!
Please keep me in your prayers as I begin this new step of my life and sort out all the details of this transition.
In Christ through Mary,
Br. Benedict Mary, soon to be Brad, Geist
