Title: ECCE FIAT ("BEHOLD, LET IT BE"): A VISIT TO CLEAR CREEK MONASTERY
This documentary begins with the quote "A monk is he who directs his gaze toward God alone, and who, being at peace with God, becomes a source of peace for others." The program centers around the prayers of Divine Office that the Monks pray throughout the day. It is a documentary on Our Lady of the Annunciation of Clear Water Creek Monastery in Cherokee County, Oklahoma. Providing a brief history of the Benedictine rule since 6th century Italy, a closer look is provided as this 1500 year-old Benedictine tradition continues today at this very young monastery at the foot of the Ozark Mountains. This DVD provides an ideal resource of showing what a monk is, the centrality of the Eucharist within the monastic life, and the beautiful way the documentary divides time with the rhythm prayer.
