Product Description

“Our aim is to create a lifelong companion for you, the friends of monasteries, you want to seek God with the sons and daughters of St Benedict. This handbook is not written for monks and nuns themselves, but rather for those who belong, in whatever sense, to the wider family of the Benedictines. It is not meant to be read all at once — we hope that you will dip in and out of it, sometimes for information but more often for support in prayer and for deepening your own sense of belonging.” — from the Introduction by Fr. Anthony Marett-Crosby OSB, Ampleforth Abbey

This handbook is written for oblates and those drawn to Benedictine spirituality. The book contains:

  • Part One: Saint Benedict’s Rule
  • Part Two: Tools for Benedictine Spirituality
  • Part Three: The Benedictine Experience of God
  • Part Four: Living The Rule
  • Part Five: The Benedictine Family
  • Part Six: A Glossary of Benedictine Terms

Several well-known authors have contributed to this handbook including: Michael Casey OCSO, Terence Kardong OSB, Anthony Marett-Crosby OSB,  and Esther de Waal.
