Online Auction Description
United States 1939 issue, Scott's catalog # 839 1¢ green coil stamp. Precanceled: Saint Meinrad, Ind. This stamp is without defects, and has no damage.
Saint Meinrad is an unincorporated census-designated place in Harrison Township, Spencer County, Indiana, along the Anderson River and just off Interstate 64. It is home to the St. Meinrad Archabbey. Population 706.
Saint Meinrad Archabbey in Spencer County, Indiana, USA, was founded by monks from Einsiedeln Abbey (Switzerland) on March 21, 1854, and is home to approximately 98 monks. It is one of only two archabbeys in the United States and one of only 9 in the world.
The Benedictine community at Saint Meinrad consists of men who dedicate their lives to prayer and work. They gather in community five times a day-for morning prayer, Mass, noon prayer, evening prayer and compline-to pray for the Church and the world. Guests often join the monks in prayer in the Archabbey Church. Gregorian chant is sung in the canonical hours of the monastic Office, primarily in antiphons used to sing the Psalms, in the Great Responsories of Matins, and the Short Responsories of the Lesser Hours and Compline. The psalm antiphons of the Office tend to be short and simple, especially compared to the complex Great Responsories. In addition, the monks spend private time reading spiritual and religious materials. They live under the Rule of St. Benedict, the 6th-century instructions for community living written by St. Benedict.
