Welcome to the "Benedictine Beacon," which focuses on
how ancient monastic thought might impact upon the issues
and interests held in our own time. Likely it would be more
beneficial to go to the earliest input--which is the "Introduction"
and then move your way forward.

[This blog is dedicated to the memory of an esteemed friend,
the late Rt. Rev. Leonard Vickers, third abbot of St. Anselm's
Abbey, Washington, D.C., and eighth abbot of Douai Abbey,
Woolhampton, England.]
