Editorial Reviews

"Anyone who is interested in a daily approach to Benedictine spirituality that is both accessible to the novice and grounded in the tradition will find Benedictine Living a valuable guide. Kate Ritger seamlessly weaves together Scripture, the Rule of St. Benedict, contemporary monastic authors, and her own experience living as a Benedictine oblate to reveal how the cornerstones of Benedictine living, such as humility, prayer, work, and moderation, can day by day transform a life."

"Clarity, insight and personal authenticity permeate these reflections for daily life. In engaging conversation with her readers Kate Ritger describes and explores graced opportunities in the particularities of life in light of values and practices integral to the Rule of Benedict and Benedictine community living. This daybook is a compassionate and encouraging mirror for her readers, one in which they will see more clearly the transforming possibilities for their own lives."
Katherine Howard, OSB

"Kate Ritger reminds readers of the daily process of being mindful. With a keen sense for finding the sacred in the ordinary, Ritger poses a challenge for readers to create a space for Benedictine meditation in their lives. The reflections paint a local picture on a timeless rule lived out in the 21st century and express the truthfulness of a life lived in the spirit of Saint Benedict."
Nickolas Kleespie, OSB

"Discover a way that the spirit of St. Benedict can come alive while growing green. Using stories, wisdom and personal experience, Kate Ritger gives flesh to this ancient text in a refreshing new way. Like the leaves and fruit of a plant, the Chapters of the Rule of Benedict can nourish a hunger."
