Soliloquy in an International Cloister

Watch your step as Brother Lawrence takes you inside the monastery walls of a five hundred year-old international order. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll wish you had ignored your hormones and joined the monastery.

Hall politics

I have written before about a confrere and co-worker that we nicknamed "the cunning linguist" for his translation skills. Besides his linguistic skills, he is also a good thinker and has a lot of good ideas about the Order, especially on issues that are close to his heart. As an interpreter, however, the only way he can promote his ideas at a Chapter is to talk to delegates during the breaks. Watching him do this led us to bestow on him a new moniker — "the Hobby Horse Whisperer".
