That Will Be Your Legacy
“And in doing good, let us not fail. For in due time we shall reap, not failing. Therefore, whilst we have time, let us work good to all men, but especially to those who are of the household of the faith.”
(Galations 6: 9&10)
Bequests, or gifts made through an individual’s estate, have helped the expansion of the various apostolates of Saint Benedict Center.
The Chapel at Montfort Retreat in New Hampshire was a result of a bequest of a friend who knew us through our magazine, “From the HouseTops.” The Sisters’ Convent was built in large part from a number of smaller bequests. MacIsaac Hall, High School, and gym, likewise were helped along in various stages of construction by friends far and near who wanted to leave a legacy that would support Traditional Catholicism and Traditional Catholic Education.
Expansion will continue in proportion to the support of friends and individuals who love the Faith as it was handed down through the ages.
Investing in Eternity
“If we look forward to receiving God’s mercy, we can never fail to do good so long as we have the strength. For if we share with the poor, out of love for God, whatever he has given to us, we shall receive according to his promise a hundredfold in eternal happiness. What a fine profit, what a blessed reward! With outstretched arms he begs us to turn toward him, to weep for our sins, and to become the servants of love, first for ourselves, then for our neighbors. Just as water extinguishes a fire, so love wipes away sin.
– St. John of God
