In thirty short reflections, Abbot Jerome Kodell of Subiaco Abbey provides a lifetime of wisdom on living the Christian life. Drawing on Scripture, the Rule of St. Benedict, and other spiritual writings, Kodell helps us to realize that our common human desires and struggles make life in the monastery not so very different from life in the world. His encouragement and reassurance gives us hope that we can pray, experience God’s loving presence, and stay faithful to the commitments we’ve made. Among the many themes he addresses are holiness, freedom, service, money, hospitality, and silence.
* Appropriate for anyone still searching for God, as well as for those trying to live as
Christians in the world today.
* Insightful and beautifully written.
* Makes a thoughtful gift.
