Tyburn Tree Bears Abundant Fruit

And more news from the Tyburn Family from France;

SAINT-LOUP-SUR-AUJON, France (CNS) -- The moment a monstrance bearing the Blessed Sacrament was fixed high over an altar in a convent church in a remote French valley, a nun stepped forward to start the process of eucharistic adoration -- one the sisters hope will continue day and night, week after week and year after year.

Mother Marie Xavier McMonagle thus began the perpetual adoration of the "Tyburn Nuns," an order of enclosed contemplative Benedictine nuns established to worship the "Eucharistic Heart of Jesus."
In so doing, she also closed a day of ceremonies to install the order's newest community, situated near Dijon, France.

This community, the 12th to be established in less than a century, has eight members, each of whom will spend a minimum one hour a day in adoration before the Blessed Sacrament. Sometimes they will be assisted by lay Catholics.

A founding charism of the Adorers of the Sacred Heart of Jesus of Montmartre is the unceasing eucharistic adoration, which continues round-the-clock when the community is large enough for its members to physically and mentally sustain such prayer.

At present there seems to be no shortage of women expressing an interest in such devotion because the opening of the convent Sept. 29 represents the latest expansion of a female religious order which -- like the Nashville Dominicans in the U.S. -- is growing rapidly while others decline.

Mother Marie Adele Garnier founded the order in Paris in 1898, and it had a rocky start. Initially, its members were struck by unseen blows and showered with altar breads, among a range of terrifying supernatural attacks they attributed to the devil.

France's Law of Associations, which forbade the existence of religious groups unregistered by the state, eventually caused they to move to London. In 1903 the nuns established a convent close to the site of the Tyburn gallows, where at least 105 Catholics were martyred during the Reformation.

After World War II, the Tyburn Nuns, as they were known, expanded to Ireland, Australia and Peru and, since 1993, have opened communities in Scotland, Ecuador, Colombia, Italy and New Zealand.
The French convent opened less than a year after the nuns began building a religious house in Nigeria, their first in Africa, which is expected to be fully completed, with a novitiate, by 2015.
