Description

Mount Saviour Monastery was founded by Fathers Damasus, Gregory, Placid, and Bernard in the fields of the Hofbauer farm in upstate New York in the spirit of the joy of the Paschal Lord that He wishes to share with us, as described by Saint John: “That my joy may be in you and your joy may be complete' (John 15:11). The essays gathered in this volume celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of Mount Saviour, and the contributors not only reminisce about this exemplary monastery but also reflect on Benedictine life in general and the ongoing contributions of monastic life to the Church and to the world at large.
