Ordinary Life…

“The spirituality that emerges from the rule of Benedict is a spirituality charged with living the ordinary life extraordinarily well. Here transforming life rather than transcending it is what counts.”

    You’ve been hittin’ the Sr. Joan a bit lately, haven’t you Roger? Ha! Good stuff. But watch out, it might make you want to be a Benedictine oblate.

    I know a couple of good monasteries in your neck of the woods…ok, I’ll stop. 🙂

    Shucks, I’m Protestant and don’t even know for sure what an oblate is. Granted, I’ve been drinking heavily at your fountains lately.

    Uh, which monastaries?
