What are religious? What does the Lord ask of them? What should their interior attitude be to poverty, chastity, obedience, and to the everyday demands of life in a community? Dom Prosper Gueranger’s monastic wisdom is offered to religious, clergy, and laity as an insight into the contemplative monastic life and as a primer for the spiritual life of every Christian. This new translation from the French original includes an extensive introduction to the monastic doctrina of Dom Gueranger by a Benedictine nun of St Cecilia’s Abbey, Ryde.
