The Cloister Walk review Ê eBook or Kindle ePUB Why would a married woman with a thoroughly Protestant background and often doubt than faith be drawn to the ancient practice of monasticism to a community of celibate men whose days are centered around a rigid schedule of prayer work and scripture This is the uestion that poet Kathleen Norris asks us as somewhat to her own surprise she. Read this book many years ago but I can t recall exactly how many I m 99% sure it was in the late 90 s In any event I was still so ignorant about my own Catholic heritage at that point I hadn t even heard of The Rule of St Benedict which I promptly went out bought and read from cover to cover Now I have three or four copies of it When I think of a good rule of life I think of St Benedict s Rule and I am grateful to this Protestant woman for teaching me about it The Cloister Walk as best as I can remember it is a collection of essays written by Kathleen Norris about her discovery of and journey with The Rule of St Benedict and the monks of a Benedictine Abbey in Minnesota It is a very uiet meditative book which touched me deeply when I read it much like Thomas Merton s Seven Storey Mountain I pray that it isn t just a desire for escapism but a real hungering after that still small voice which can only be heard when one voluntarily abandons the outer world for the uiet and peace of inner communion with HimA beautiful book partly biographical deeply reflective and very spiritual Highly recommendedSadly I gave away my original copy of this bookso I need to get another This is a book worth owning Even though I was in my early forties at the time and a cradle Catholic product of 12 years of parochial schools
