Enrich your mind and spirit—visit the monastery library and discover our new books!

More than 1,500 years ago, Benedict of Nursia wrote the Rule, a guide to living in community. Benedict’s Rule concentrated on hospitality, prayer, community life and how to create a balance among these different dimensions of life. The Rule proved to be timeless. It still has something to offer Christian women and men today.

The monastery library has over thirty books on Benedict’s Rule, from translations to commentaries. Come browse through our collection and find an aspect of the Rule that calls to you.
