Product Description

"How should we live in this house of God? We know that the way a building is shaped also helps in determining the way those within it live and relate. We are indeed formed by what we form. Qualities such as integrity, hospitality, humanity and beauty in a place will enable its dwellers to live lives in which such qualities are evident. The way we understand who we are and how we live will be reflected in our places and vice versa. Our places become bearers of meaning and memory." - From Chapter 1

In Living in the House of God, Margaret Malone draws on her study of and research on the Rule of Saint Benedict to show the ways in which this ancient rule can illuminate modern life. The broad gamut of topics this book examines - from Benedictine life as sacrament to Augustine's influence on Benedict to obedience and the art of listening, among others - is itself a witness to the generous flexibility of the Rule, as Benedict proposes a way of life that truly corresponds to the deepest needs of the whole of human nature.

Margaret Malone, SGS, is a member of the Sisters of the Good Samaritan of the Order of St Benedict. She trained as a teacher and taught at all levels; her last appointment was as a lecturer at Australian Catholic University where she taught sacraments, liturgy, and social justice. Since then, her main work has been in formation throughout her own order and with the Benedictine monks at New Norcia. She gives retreats internationally and nationally.

Michael Casey, OCSO, has been a monk of Tarrawarra Abbey (Australia) since 1960. After completing a degree in Scripture at Leuven, he received his doctorate from Melbourne College of Divinity for a study of desire for God in the writings of Bernard of Clairvaux.

His books include The Road to Eternal Life: Reflections on the Prologue of Benedict’s Rule (Liturgical Press, 2011), Strangers to the City (Paraclete Press, 2005), and A Guide to Living in the Truth (Liguori, 2001).

Editorial Reviews

"After more than half a century living and teaching the Benedictine Rule, Sister Margaret Malone has collected some of the articles written over the years, demonstrating her ability to bring the Rule to bear on the contemporary world. This book is a fine example of the Benedictine tradition of humanitas."
