The Benedictine Monks of Saint John's Abbey
At the heart of the 1500 year Benedictine
"Worship and Work" succinctly describes the daily rhythm and spiritual dynamic of the monks of the Order of Saint Benedict.
A vocation to prayer, the first work of the Benedictine monks is worship. Benedictine prayer — the liturgy of the hours, daily Mass, and the ancient spiritual tradition of lectio divina — strives to serve the spiritual needs of the Church and world.
Daily Work among the Benedictine monks articulates and punctuates the spiritual life of the community, giving physical expression to the spiritual fruits of a life of worship. Many of the products found in this store are the hand made work of monks, expressing a life and vocation of prayer and devotion to God.
