For one quarter of the day, every Benedictine is supposed to do reading from the monastery library. But here is the crucial insight. The point is not to have the reader go through the book. It is instead for the book to go through the reader. How different would we read the Christmas story, if we do not just go through the story but let the story go through us?
With cloisterseminars.org we envision a
that merges intellectual seeking and contemplative practice with monastic wisdom and hospitality.
We invite you to come along on this journey.
