"A monk's life becomes prayer"

"Sometimes it takes place
in community prayer with his brothers
in a liturgical setting.

"Other times, it takes place alone in his room,
perhaps during the long interval
following the community meditation.

"Still other times it takes shape in his work...

"Monastic life is no quick fix.
It is slower paced than outside the monastery,
and it aims toward a life long commitment....
If you feel an attraction to this kind of life..."
