Publisher's Description

Matthew Kelty, a native of Boston, has been a monk of Gethsemani since 1960. Before that he served as an active priest in the Society of the Divine Word, both in the States, and in Papua New Guinea. His previous books include Flute Solo (Sheed, Andrews & McMeel), Sermons in the Monastery, Cal of the Wild Geese, and Singing for the Kingdom (Cistercian Publications).

He was a novice of Thomas Merton, who later chose him as his confessor. After some years at Gethsemani, he became a hermit for ten years in Papua New Guinea. After returning to the monastery, he became chaplain to the guests and retreatants, to whom he gave a spiritual conference each evening after Compline.

Gethsemani Homilies: Revised and Enlarged Edition was first published by the Franciscan Press in Quincy, Illinois, but after a short time the Press closed down, and the manuscript was returned to Gethsemani. The editor, William O. Paulsell, has revised and enlarged the edition that we have here.

Editorial Reviews

Much erudition and spirituality shines through these homilies. I would give it the highest kind of endorsement. When I turned the last page, I immediately went back and started reading it all over again.
Fr. Matthias Neuman, OSB, American Benedictine Review

For countless guests and retreatants at the Abbey of Gethsemani, being present in the guest chapel after Compline and listening to Fr. Matthew was a memorable experience. That voice is now silent but the wisdom and humility, poetry and humour are powerfully present in this book.

    Matthew Kealty is one of my favorite authors because of his humanity and humor. His background as a missionary, editor, hermit, and Trappist give him a unique perspective on the human condition. He is much more readable and applicable than Thomas Merton, for instance, who likes to show off his knowledge. While Kealty is similarly educated, he is much more humble, as a monk should be. His homilies are heartily recommended.
