In May 1913, Pope Pius X received Abbot Columba Marmion OSB and Abbot Aelred Carlyle OSB in audience. The latter, together with his Community, was in the process of reception into the full communion of the Catholic Church. This audience was an important milestone in their journey and it was in the following month that the Community was canonically erected.

May Pope St Pius X pray for us, in all our journeys of faith, and may God bless you this day.
