Last year while visiting in Galena, I had the occassion to visit the Trappist monks of New Melleray Abbey. During my visit at New Melleray I spoke to a monk and attended the noontime Divine Office (the monks doing God's work - prayer). The time reminder me of my time (four years) as a Benedictine monk over forty-one years ago at Marmion Abbey, Aurora, IL. Ms. Brachear's article produced similar feelings. I believe she captured the essential of the monastic life. Congratulations!

57 years ago, I was a novice for two years at New Melleray. Although I am no longer a Catholic, I still warmly recall that which was larger than religion in my life there. I am pleased that the monastic work of charity remains.
