Title: THIRSTING FOR GOD: PRAYERS FROM A MONASTERY
Deep within each of us is the desire to drink from the fountain of God's life-giving Spirit. The source of that desire welling up within us is also its realization. "Let anyone who thirsts come to me and drink," Jesus says. The monks at Saint Meinrad Archabbey, like other men and women who have followed the Rule of St. Benedict for centuries, dedicate their lives to prayer, work, and community life based on the Gospel. Whether chanting the Psalms together, prayerfully reading scripture, or simply soaking in the resounding silence of God's Word, the monks strive to listen for and respond to the voice of the Lord in the daily rhythm of their lives. They thirst for God, and with Christians everywhere, lift up their hands, call on God's name, and say, "Lord, teach us to pray." 97 pages.
