The Rhythm of Life, the Monastic Way
by Brother Victor-Antoine d'Avila-Latourette
From the origins of Benedictine tradition to our lives today, A Rthythm of Life, the Monastic Way traces and reflects upon a way of life that is both simple and inspiring. Brother Victor-Antoine d'Avila Latourette highlights the many traditions, both daily and yearly, that bring us back to a prayerful, meaningful life that often escapes us in our busy day-to-day lives.
Brother Victor-Antoine explains the origins of monstic tradition and its essential virtues. Guided by reflection through the four seasons, you will consider the simple rhythms of daily monstic life, in which prayer and work - Ora et Labora - are in balance and seasonal feast days are celebrated.
The wisdom spirituality of the monastic life, inspired by St. Benedict, will rouse in you a desire to apply its virtues in your own life and to live simply in peace.
Brother Victor-Antoine d'Avila-Latourette is resident monk at Our Lady of the Resurrection Monastery near Millbrook, New York, a monstery that lives under the Rule of St. Benedict. There he cooks and tends garden that spuulies both the monastery and the local farmers' market.
