Europe

I believe that the brilliant theologian and monk named Benedict, from that cloister right within the walls of the Vatican, is still writing from the depth of his prayer and contemplation. I will venture to propose that his best writing may still be ahead. It is his unfinished work. I hope that his choice of the monastic life becomes a seed which gives rise to a monastic renewal in the Third Christian Millennium of Christianity.
