I spotted this picture on Twitter and reminded me of all the monasteries I’ve visited. It also reminded me of my ever present resolution to write more posts for The Suburban Hermit— the Benedictine spirituality channel of the blog. Suburban Hermit used to be a separate blog I maintained, but I merged it with this website when we got this one up and running.

Suburban Hermit features posts on Benedictine spirituality, monastic prayer and work, pictures of the monastic life and comment on the monastic way. You can read my post about The Refectory here. I’m afraid it is behind the paywall, but this gives added value to Donor Subscribers.
