New monk film coming soon....

Here is the trailer for a film on the Benedictine monastery of Norcia, Italy.

This wonderful monastery, based at the site of the birthplace of SS Benedict and Scholastica (and now a centre of the black truffle trade!), was founded by a group of American monks ten yers ago. 

The monks sing the traditional Office, and use both EF and OF forms of the Mass (in Latin).  They also put up webcasts of their daily EF mass, Lauds and Vespers on the net for you to follow along with...

The film was made over (European) summer this year, and is due out in December...

Kate: You should change the width of the screen (and, arguably, the left column of your format) ... only the left half of the screen is visible.

Soryy about that Anthony 0 I think if you watch it full screen it will be ok, but changing the screen width is beyond my technological capabilities, and changing my left margin requires a whole new template...

I was privileged to stay with these holy men earlier on this year. A fantastic thriving community, who also do a lot of work with the local residents.
God bless them!
