July 10 – The Power of Silence
Yesterday we completed the mealtime reading of Why I Am Catholic (And You Should Be Too) by Brandon Vogt. Today we are beginning reading “The Order in 2017 and Some Horizons for the Future” a conference of our Abbot General. When we conclude the conference, our new refectory book will be The Power of Silence: Against the Dictatorship of Noise by Cardinal Robert Sarah and Nicolas Diat.
from Rule of St. Benedict: Chapter 38. The Reader for the Week
Reading will always accompany the meals of the brothers.
