The Christian life is meant to be one of unity. It is about making the whole of life holy. The path of eternal life is an integrated journey we must make each day by embracing rhythmic lives of prayer, work, faithfulness and conversion. These rhythms, through the grace of God, give our lives strength and sacred purpose, most often through the very ordinary.

This ideal found concrete expression early in the history of Christianity through the lives of monks and nuns living according to the ancient Rule of St. Benedict. While not everyone is called to be a monk or a nun, all Christians are called to faithfully live the Gospel, and the Rule of St. Benedict offers a time-honored way for anyone to do just that.

Sacred Rhythms: The Monastic Way Every Day is a compilation of reflections originally published in our Notes from a Monastery series. Gathered here under the themes of prayer, work, faithfulness, and conversion, these meditations showcase the knowledge of religious and lay authors familiar with the Benedictine way of life.

Authors include Fr. Michael Casey, O.C.S.O, Kathleen Norris, Sr. Joan Chittister, O.S.B., Fr. Dwight Longenecker, Sr. Laura Swan, O.S.B., and Fr. Joel Rippinger, O.S.B., among many others. Together, they demonstrate that the Benedictine way of life has modern relevance in a world seeking the sacred rhythms that keep us connected.
