old monkHave you checked out my new blog yet? I’ve taken the opportunity to create a blog free from ads and flashing lights and the distractions of Patheos.

It focusses on monastic spirituality, book reviews, prayer, work and reading.

Today at Suburban Hermit is the biography of St Benedict from my book St Benedict and St Therese-The Little Rule and the Little Way.

There is a great picture of Rievaulx Abbey in Yorkshire, England with the Shakespeare sonnet that refers to “bare ruin’d choirs”

I’ve also posted a pic and little quote from St Therese and a review of Marcellino D’Ambrosio’s book, When the Church Was Young – Voices of the Early Church Fathers.

I’ll also be posting quotes and inspirational passages from The Old Red Book – go here to learn more.

Take a break from all the gossip, noise and negativity of the internet and be inspired and refreshed!
