Strangers To The City Reflections On The Beliefs And Values Of The Rule Of Saint Benedict Paperback - 2005

by Michael Casey


From the publisher

Michael Casey, a monk and scholar who has been publishing his wise teachings on the Rule of St. Benedict for decades, turns to the particular Benedictine values that he considers most urgent for Christians to incorporate into their lives today. Eloquent and incisive, Casey invites readers to accept that gospel living - seen in the light of the Rule - involves accepting the challenge of being different from the secular culture around us. He encourages readers to set clear goals and objectives, to be honest about the practical ways in which priorities may have to change to meet these goals, and to have the courage to implement these changes both daily and for the future. Casey presents thoughtful reflections on the beliefs and values of asceticism, silence, leisure, reading, chastity, and poverty - putting these traditional Benedictine values into the context of modern life and the spiritual aspirations of people today. Strangers to the City is a book for all who are interested in learning more about the dynamics of spiritual growth from the monastic experience.

Description:
Paraclete Press (MA), September 2005. Paper Back. Very Good. Michael Casey is a Benedictine monk writing for monks. So what business do the masses have reading him? Well, to quote a Benedictine scholar, ''Casey knows what Benedict is trying to say. And he knows how to apply it to the modern world.'' Crunched for time and often lacking spiritual, intellectual, and emotional resources, we (being the Church as a whole) are nonetheless called--as St. Benedict advised his monks, to be ''strangers to the actions of the age.'' Brother Casey invites us to enter into the monastic experience where the universal struggle of divine grace and human sinfulness is played out day after day, an experience in which the reality of weakness and precariousness can help us cling to Christ in faith and hope of a victory we've yet to see with our own eyes.
