Sister Laura Swan, the former Prioress of St. Placid, where I am an Oblate, was interviewed on our local public radio station, you can find the link here.
Sr. Laura has written several books on Benedictine tradition worth checking out:
The Forgotten Desert Mothers: Sayings, Lives, and Stories of Early Christian Women
Engaging Benedict: What The Rule Can Teach Us Today
The Benedictine Tradition (Spirituality in History)
I am off for a few days of creative inspiration. I will still have posts each day this week and should have email access as well but I may be a bit slower than usual in responding or approving those comments that get sent to my moderation folder.
