Worship & Work

Deep calls to Deep

At the heart of the 1500 year Benedictine spiritual tradition, "Worship and Work" succinctly describes the daily rhythm and spiritual dynamic of the monks of the Order of Saint Benedict.

A vocation to Worship, the first Work of the Benedictine monks is Worship. The Benedictine Work of Worship; the liturgy of the hours, daily Mass, and the ancient tradition of lectio divina, strives to serve to the spiritual need of the world and Church.

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.

Worship inspires Work. 
Work reveals Worship.

Artist's Bio

Brother Peter Sullivan is a monk at Saint John's Abbey in Collegeville, MN.  Growing up in a small town Mattituck on Long Island, he held various jobs in NY, from second grade teacher to owning a small lawn care/landscaping business, to managing a pet store, until moving to Minnesota in 2005 to become a monk. The death of his sister inspired him to draw his memories of her, ultimately coming to believe that his discovery of art was a gift from his sister, through her death. Now, Brother Peter doesn't know how he lived the first thirty-three years of his life without making art, and has not stopped making art since.

Brother Peter was initially interested in painting and drawing representationally, beginning with memories of his sister, and after moving to the monastery, he painted portraits of monks in the monastery retirement floor, displaying an uncanny ability for capturing an essence of the monk's spirit and personality.

Later, Brother Peter turned his attention to creating highly detailed abstract ink drawings, particularly enjoying working with ink because he was able to make finer lines than compared to paint, gaining the opportunity to get lost in the details of his ink drawings. These drawings are reminiscent of forms found in nature, lines, textures, patterns, shapes, which Brother Peter says remind him of God, and serve as a contemplative form of prayer for him. When he gets into the zone, he finds he can't help but to think about the wonder of God.
