1990 The Future of the Abbey

As the aging Monks are settled in their new home, a new dilemma becomes the lack of new postulants. In our modern world, the monastic life is less attractive than it once was. Is the Monastery and its unique way of life a way worth preserving? What is the value of the Monastery in our contemporary world?

Notes:

1. "That which has been called the spirituality of the desert, that form of the contemplative spirit which seeks God in silence and denudation, is a profound impulsion of the Holy Spirit which will never cease as long as there are hearts to respond to His voice." Pius XII
