With Br Augustine Wilmeth OSB in Norcia

My article for Aleteia this week is an interview with Br Augustine Wilmeth–a monk of Norcia.

I first met Brother Augustine Wilmeth when he was one of the students where I served as chaplain. As a convert, he was intensely interested not only in his new Catholic faith but in the more traditional expressions of life and worship.
