Like every Christian way of life, the monastic life involves a continual return to the gospel and this exploration begins on the road to Emmaus, in the company of downhearted disciples who were astonished to discover the Lord in their midst. In this thought-provoking book, monks and nuns open up the Rule of St Benedict and explore how to live the English Benedictine Congregation's monastic mission today. It invites each monastery and each monk or nun to a renewed encounter with the Lord on the road. Under impulse of the Holy Spirit and the guidance of the Church, a group of English Benedictine monks and nuns have written a substantial theological foundation for their way of life. It will inspire all clergy, religious and lay people who value the consecrated life.
