Our little monastery gift shop is always busy this time of year! This year has been especially busy with sales of our new Christmas CD “By the Manger at Christmas.”
This album offers fresh meditations on the beauty and wonder of Christmas, featuring 15 traditional hymns and carols in English, Latin, French, Polish, German, and Italian. It reaches back through the ages to these European cultures that have always welcomed the Christ Child in simplicity and love.
Their devotion lives on in their songs, even to this day, and these hymns and carols are a glimpse into the heartwarming welcome that we give Him here at the monastery each Christmas. We hope that you too will open your heart and come to the manger of the Little Infant Jesus to find Him and the peace and love that He brings.
Hymns and Carols by the Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Brothers and Sisters.
