... a monk's journey

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Fr. Benedict tells of his calling to the life of a cloistered contemplative monk, his training in a Spanish monastery, and his being sent to only Carthusian monastery in the U.S.  He was trained to live to the letter of the rule, and compares that training to what he actually lived as a fully trained monk, including the several positions of authority he exercised within the monastic community, up to his eventual departure and ultimate severance of ties with the Carthusian Order.
