Publishers Description

Anselm Gra1/4n, OSB, famed Benedictine author and cellarer'supplies manager 'of his monastery at Ma1/4nsterschwarzach, offers brief reflections on aspects of the "Rule of Benedict." He sketches the life of Benedict and reflects on how Benedict's instructions enable one to live constantly in the presence of God. Even the most mundane objects are signs of the presence of God. It is not merely that we focus our attention on God, but that we're aware that God always focuses attention on us, loving and encouraging us in al things. For example: he calls the cellarer to regard al utensils and goods of the monastery as sacred vessels of the altar.

Gra1/4n also ponders how work is an aid to prayer and how the Benedictine vow of stability is essential to building community. Silence and the solitude that characterize the monastic are conditions for the possibility of genuine community.

Each chapter concludes with a brief reflection on the state of contemporary society and how the aspect of the "Rule of Benedict" treated in the chapter applies to the needs of today.

Reviews - What do customers think about Benedict of Nursia: His Message for Today?

Practical Ideas for Balanced Life  Feb 25, 2006
Anselm Grun, a Benedictine monk with a doctorate in theology, couldn't be more practical. To set the stage, he points out the similarities between Benedict's time and our own. Fifteen hundred years ago, Benedict responded to the continual changes of the day with a demand for "stability." Interpreting Benedict's rule, Grun suggests that self-imposed external order brings order to one's moods and feelings as well, rather than simply pushing them down.

Grun applies Benedict's message to the twenty-first century plight of feeling overburdened by work. Today, he writes, many wish to leave the world of work altogether, often a flight from both reality and God. But Benedict's rule and the rhythm of the monastery guide us toward managing work in the light of prayer. Grun provides well defined steps for dealing with irritations on the job, clarifying goals, doing one's best then "turning off" the world of work. Throughout the chapters on discernment, peace, and community, Grun follows the same format, connecting Benedict's writing with the modern world and offering concrete suggestions.

This is a valuable, easy-to-follow resource for individuals and small groups, who might find some surprises in the section on community.
