Benedictines: April 2011 Archives

Portsmouth Monks 2011.jpgBenedictine monasticism has a beautiful way of adapting, in a sensitive and intelligent way, to the times. Being contemporaneous doesn't mean trendy. It means, in my mind, taking seriously the fact of the Incarnation: that in all things God may be glorified. Pope Benedict has been advocating the prudent use of social media, a point for this blog!

The culture editor at America Magazine Jesuit Father James Martin, reviews the stunning movie "Of Gods and Men" on Religion and Ethics Newsweekly. His comments are worth hearing.

Here is a previous post on "Of Gods and Men" with a few links to other pages including Prior Christian de Cherge's testament.
