A FEW EXCERPTS FROM THE BOOK…
P. 116 “I thought this group of monks was protected from getting uppity, or changing. Daily they got grungy. They got hot and sweaty. They were busy with their work…They started the day with a marathon Matins, Lauds, private Masses which took from about 5 AM to 7:30 AM, then there was a short break and they had Prime at 8 AM.”
P. 85 “Discernment also includes a not-limiting of God’s means of Providence. So often we expect God’s Providence to come in the manner that we expect– the direct way. Open-mindedness is the key.”
P. 124 “When you bring up a big subject– a tornado is headed this way– you expect a little attention to be given to the subject. When it’s not given, it’s just weird!”
P. 63 “What does one do when one is hemmed in all around and finds oneself engulfed in what seems to one’s heart and mind to be a sacrilege?”
