The Deliverance of Sister Cecilia is a faith-filled, action-packed true story of a Slovakian nun who lived through the Communist take over of her country which she heroically resisted.
Sister Cecilia was asleep when the warning came. “Four policemen are waiting for you downstairs, and four automobiles more of them outside! Mother Superior says to take a blanket with you because it will be cold at the police station.”
This was the summons that wrenched a young nun from cloistered convent life and sent her off on one of the most harrowing, suspenseful adventures in modern literature. In these pages she tells her story of how she helped others escape from a Communist country and was herself forced into hiding, hunted by police and informers. Sustained by her heritage of courage and faith, assisted by brace men and women who risked their lives to help her, she emerges in this remarkable true story, as a glowing testament to the human spirit.
Read in the refectory at Clear Creek Abbey starting in February 2023.
Building Something Beautiful For God –
To Last A Thousand Years
Our Lady of Clear Creek Abbey is a Benedictine community belonging to the Solesmes Congregation and, like other monasteries of the Solesmes Congregation, is to be counted among the institutes entirely ordered towards contemplation. It was founded in 1999 from the Abbey of Our Lady of Fontgombault in France and is located in the Diocese of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Clear Creek became an abbey in 2010 and counts 55 monks, who devote themselves to God alone in the hidden life, in silence and solitude, in constant prayer and willing penance.
After twenty years of existence, we are happy, by the grace of God, to have completed two large buildings and a sizable portion of our abbatial church. We completed the “Chapter House” in 2023 to accommodate the growing number of monks and provide a Sacristy, Infirmary, classrooms and the Chapter itself. Please help us continue this arduous, but important work for the glory of God.
