Into Great Silence

I know, lousy translation of “Die Große Stille,” but it’s a wonderful film. I saw it last year at the Seattle International Film Festival. It’s a documentary about the Carthusians at their motherhouse, the Grande Chartreuse. It’s also playing in the US at a city near you. If you go and aren’t up on all things Benedictine, it would be a good idea to read a bit about Carthusian monasticism, since it’s so different from other Benedictine-derived orders.

One Response to “Into Great Silence”

  1. Dear and Gentle Reader,I would like to invite you to visit my humble journal, as I start my tenure upon this continent. I have been elucidated by your musingsand wish to make your most courteous acquaintance whilst in the Americas.I am most curious about the manner in which clergy conduct themselvesin the colonies, as I am a newly arrived pastor and do not wish to offend the faithful and the savages. So prithee hense to my journal and let us hold each other accountable in our mutual love of Christ.I remain God’s most humble servant,John Wesley
