Publisher's Description

At Home with Saint Benedict is a selection of the author's conferences on Saint Benedict's Rule for Monasteries delivered to the monks of Assumption Abbey of Ava, Missouri, when he was abbot there. The author's intention was simply to share with his brother monks what Saint Benedict through his sixth-century Rule might have to offer monks of the early twenty-first century. It is hoped that these conferences, published here, will now speak to men and women outside the monastic cloister. This book is a door to the chapter room of Assumption Abbey. Readers are invited to open the door, sit down with the monks and their abbot, and feel at home with Saint Benedict.

Mark A. Scott, OCSO, is a monk of the Trappist-Cistercian Abbey of New Clairvaux, Vina, California, which he entered in 1-978. From 2000 to 2008 he served as appointed superior and then abbot of Assumption Abbey, Ava, Missouri.

Editorial Reviews

It is a work that is very accessible to a broad readership…. an example of wisdom. Monks and nuns will come away from this book with a sharpened sense of their own call. Superiors and formators will find much inspiration for their ministries. This is a must read for lay associates and others interested in applying monastic spirituality to their daily lives.
Cistercian Studies Quarterly

This book joins an impressive list of recent works from American Benedictine and Cistercian authors and their oblates, which shows a wonderful vitality in the monastic tradition in that land. All monks and nuns, oblates and associates, and all who are in the least bit interested in present-day monastic life will find in this book a treasure trove. Beg, borrow, or buy it!
Dom Alexander George, The Downside Review

This is one of the best popular books on modern monasticism that I have ever read. Anybody who wants to know more about the Rule of Benedict, and also about how it is actually lived today should obtain this book. . . . I think it is great, not just good.
