Observations of a Missionary Benedictine from Rome
The author shares with us in this chapter his observations and insights from the perspective of a Missionary Benedictine working as Prior at Sant’Anselmo, the university of the Benedictine Confederation in Rome. He starts with the demands he sees for future leaders in their communities. Then he comes up with the proposal of seeing a monastery as a kind of family. This family has to be realigned within the fundamentally changing world of the monastery.
