"For some decades now, it has been our custom to invite a prominent Church leader to celebrate with us the Feast of St. Benedict or the Feast of St. Meinrad. "Benedictines, by their vow of stability, have always in- serted themselves for life into a given geographic area. It is important for us to be re- minded of the larger Church and for the larger Church to be personally aware of the pres- ence of St. Meinrad! Certainly the representative of the Holy Father is one who, by his very presence, reminds us of the larger Church." During the reception which followed the Mass, members of the Benedictine community, students and guests had the opportunity to meet the Pro- Nuncio.

The Benedictine community of St. Meinrad was officially dedicated 140 years ago on March 21, the Feast of St. Benedict, and consisted of four monks, one Brother candidate and two Oblates. At that time, the monastery was a simple log cabin. The day of the bless- ing began with a solemn High Mass by Father Joseph Kun- dek in Ferdinand, and then a procession to the site at St. Meinrad. More than 1,500 stood in the pouring rain as Father Kundek blessed the monastery. The Benedictine community currently consists of 140 monks. "We pray that God grant us at least another lt0 years to be of assistance," said Archab- bet Timothy, "not only to our Church, but to our neighbors here in southern Indiana."
