5.0 out of 5 stars Great sense of presnce in monastic silence, 14 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Time to Keep Silence (Paperback)
Great sense of presence and beauty within the monastic tradition. By comparing the french experience it gives an indication of the terrible loss this country has suffered since the Reformation and the destruction of the British Monastic tradition, loss of balance that took away the ideals of sanctity, personal autonomy and love. This let the destructive forces of utilitarianism and industrialism develop in there most destructive patterns without check. Now humanity is taking another step backwards from the compassionate ideals of sensitivity. We need a retreat tradition expanding to every village and town again where people can repose in beauty and humanity.
