from monastery to me

Here at the Benedictine Abbey of St. Meinrad, home to Abbey Press, I have found a set of small booklets that begin with life in the monastery and end with insights into living life everywhere: “Notes from a Monastery: the Sacred Way of Everyday Life.”

These titles were the first to draw me to read them:

– A Guide to Lectio Divina: God’s Word Made Alive
– Living in Gratitude: Reflecting on Benedict’s Caution against Grumbling
– Anchoring Your Life: Stability in a Moving World
– Making Our Work Holy: Reconnecting with God the Creator
– Moderation in All Things: A Path to Peace Beyond Measure
– Searching for Balance: Finding Hope in the Face of Contradiction

Which one beckons you?
