Product Description

Monastic life involves a continual return to the Gospel and this exploration begins on the road to Emmaus, in the company of downhearted disciples who were astonished to discover the Lord in their midst. Inviting the reader to a renewed encounter with the Lord on the road, this book explores the Rule of Saint Benedict and illustrates how the English Benedictine Congregation is responding to Christ's call today. It will inspire all clergy, religious and lay people who value the consecrated life.

Editorial Reviews

"Modest as it may be in size, it is large in its scope of study and deep in the insights it provides on living a credible monastic witness in the world of today. The Statement offers nothing less than a `reading of the monastic reality of our lives and its grounding in the Rule and in the word of God' (#135). That is a directive any monastic today should take to heart. This Statement is a reliable tool for accomplishing that purpose."
Joel Rippinger, OSB, American Benedictine Review

"An exceptional tool for all monastic leaders and those involved in formation and vocation ministry. The authors ground the prayer, apostolic work, and life of each individual monastic and the community in the monastic consecration to and communion with Christ. . . . A rich, nourishing, and fresh integration of the monastic call, using the resources of recent papal teaching (Popes John Paul II, Benedict XVI, and Francis) as well as developments in Christology, ecclesiology, trinitarian theology, and missiology."
From the Foreword by Abbot John Klassen, OSB, Saint John's Abbey, Collegeville, MN
