Benedictine Hermits of John the Baptist -- New Community of Tradition

(Asuncion, katholisches) On the 15th of August on the Feast of the Assumption, in the South American state of Paraguay, Estevão Maria Salto was ordained a deacon by Msgr. Rogelio Livieres Plano, the Bishop of the Ciudad del Este.  Brother Estevão Maria is the founder of a community of Benedictine hermits.  The young community cultivates exclusively the Liturgy in the extraordinary form of the Roman Rite.

The Benedictine hermits live lives of eucharistic reparation in the Hermitage of St. John the Baptist.  They cultivate a life of penance for sins for sacrilege against the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar.  The community is made of brothers and priests, who live as hermits.  They can also belong in a separate class also as celibate or married laity, who live in the world, but are devoted however as is suitable to them to make reparations for sacrileges against the Eucharist.  "Our main purpose in the Church is the serveice to honor the Most Holy Eucharist and reparation.  We sacrifice our lives for the good of the Church and the entire people of God",  says Brother Estevão Maria.
