Review: Wisdom Distilled from the Daily: Living the Rule of St. Benedict Today

User Review  - Naomi - Goodreads

Another fine volume of spiritual reflection and encouragement toward spiritual practice from Sr. Joan Chittister, this time following the Rule of St. Benedict. Although written from within her religious community, much of the wisdom is intended to be lived in our larger communities. Read full review
