For monks within the Cistercian and Benedictine tradition, the chanting of the psalms throughout the day take a central place in our communal prayer. This year, we have invited Father Konrad Schaefer, a Benedictine monk and prior of the Monastery of Our Lady of the Angels in Cuernavaca, Mexico, to direct our community retreat. Father Konrad will guide us in a series of reflections on the Book of Psalms throughout this week. Join us in prayer that the Spirit may move us and our world into a greater contemplation of God as we continue to sing His praise!
On this blog you will periodically find articles, links to pertinent websites, reflections, homilies, and images that express our monastic Cistercian life.
