With the ears of the heart one listens and attends to a hill, to many trees, to wonderful views, to the light of the passing hours of day and night, to the seasons and their weathers.
And why? Because monks are meant to listen to God everywhere…the very Word teaches that creation itself is already God’s message.
It teaches that living in time, Christians are meant to live their redemption by building and planting, working and praying, creating a culture that speaks their Good News into any number of forms that will celebrate and share it.
