A Life of Hope

152 pages (9 x 11.5"), with over 170 color photos, many by professional photographers. The text includes a brief history of monasticism, a history of Mississippi Abbey, samples of our abbesses' spiritual teaching, and several sections on monastic spirituality.

“Several monastic coffee-table books have appeared in the course of these last decades...  A Life of Hope is the standout.” Michael Downey, Cistercian Studies Quarterly

Reader comments:

- I’ve really never seen such a concise but deep description of monastic life as you have done.  You’ve given me much material for prayer!

- I especially love the way you summarized your vows, Benedictine spirituality and virtues. The excellent and abundant photos help to round out the experience.
