June 26 – The Road to Character
On Monday the community completed the mealtime reading of Flowers in the Desert: A Spirituality of the Bible by Demetrius Dumm. Our new refectory book will be The Road to Character by David Brooks.
Prior to beginning the new book we are reading several articles from the Spring 2017 edition of Catholic Rural Life : Eating is a Moral Act – Restoring Right Relationships with Food and Land.
from Rule of St. Benedict : Chapter 38. The Reader for the Week
Reading will always accompany the meals of the brothers.
