Product Description

In the Prologue of his Rule, St. Benedict maps out the road that leads to heaven; he lays the foundation for life in a community that seeks God. The themes that are present throughout the Rule--obedience, humility, prayer, fear of the Lord, eternal life--are grounded in the Prologue.

By reflecting on the Prologue one verse at a time, Michael Casey, OCSO, delves into the richness of meaning that can be found in Benedict's words. These reflections, first given as talks and made available on his community's web site, build a bridge between the sixth-century text and twenty-first century Christians. In The Road to Eternal Life, Casey invites readers to reflect on the Prologue in light of their own experiences, to seek "the road that leads to salvation."

Editorial Reviews

As usual with Michael Casey’s books, The Road to Eternal Life is a treasure of monastic wisdom made accessible to people of today, in lay or monastic life. It doesn’t sacrifice depth but gives the reader the strong meat necessary to grow in the spiritual life.

Christine Fletcher, Benedictine University, Lisle, IL

Recently I asked Brother Patrick Hart of Gethsemani who was the best writer of our times. He said, you mean, after Merton? I said, yes. Who would be the best of my generation? He replied, without hesitation, Michael Casey, OCSO. Brother Patrick went on to say, he writes with clarity and depth. Reading this new book on the Prologue of the Rule of Benedict confirms Brother Patrick's affirmation.
