Item Description...
Overview
Unique in the Church, the Camaldolese life is ordered to a three-fold good: solitude, community, and witness. Men and women as hermits live by a monastic rule, committed to both solitude and community life. The discipline of solitude combined with the second good, the rigors of community living are intended to widen the heart in service of the third good: bearing witness to the abundance of God's love as the self, others, and every living creature are brought into fuller communion in the one Love. The essays in The Privilege of Love convey the richness and the depth of the Camaldolese Benedictine spirit. Their diversity of expression is itself a manifestation of the magnitude of God's bonding Love. This bonding is the Spirit's own gift, weaving together the many voices found in these pages-voices of women and men, of monk, hermit, and layperson. The voices speak of historical roots, of the riches found in solitude and the grit of community life, of the psychological strength required in any pursuit of God, of the vulnerability of the human heart which is the home for wisdom's Word, and of the privilege of being in love with Love itself.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Benedictine Spirituality  Aug 24, 2006
This book covers the history of the Camaldolese interpretation of the Rule of St. Benedict and has much to offer the layperson's application of this rule in our secular society. Our culture does not see the importance of solitude and quiet pursuit of God. I found it very helpful.
 
FANTASTIC!  Jan 9, 2003
I can't say enough about the beauty of this book. It is worth double the cost just for the chapters on Liturgy of the Hours and scripture study. There are simple chapters and complicated chapters. This is one book you will keep on your shelf for multiple readings and spiritual lifts over the years.
