Description

At Home with Saint Benedict is a selection of the author's conferences on Saint Benedict's Rule for Monasteries delivered to the monks of Assumption Abbey of Ava, Missouri, when he was abbot there. The author's intention was simply to share with his brother monks what Saint Benedict through his sixth-century Rule might have to offer monks of the early twenty-first century. It is hoped that these conferences, published here, will now speak to men and women outside the monastic cloister. This book is a door to the chapter room of Assumption Abbey. Readers are invited to open the door, sit down with the monks and their abbot, and feel at home with Saint Benedict.

Mark A. Scott, OCSO, is a monk of the Trappist-Cistercian Abbey of New Clairvaux, Vina, California, which he entered in 1978. From 2000 to 2008 he served as appointed superior and then abbot of Assumption Abbey, Ava, Missouri.

Review quote

This book joins an impressive list of recent works from American Benedictine and Cistercian authors and their oblates, which shows a wonderful vitality in the monastic tradition in that land. All monks and nuns, oblates and associates, and all who are in the least bit interested in present-day monastic life will find in this book a treasure trove. Beg, borrow, or buy it!Dom Alexander George, The Downside Review
