This book is the work of an attorney with a busy commercial practice who searched for a truly balanced life and found the blueprint for it in a sixth-century text. After discovering St. Benedict’s Rule, McQuiston interpreted and restated the ancient system of spiritual living, enabling today’s reader to understand and make use of its remarkable insights.While strict adherence to the Rule may be possible only in a monastic setting, its bedrock, the ordering of each day, is accessible to everyone who seeks an orderly structure to their bustling professional and personal life. The brief readings and meditations in this small book offer a bridge between a busy day and a moment of restorative and blessed silence.
My moving day is tomorrow, so I've been trying all week to be ready for that momentous day. I'm not ready. Not at all. It feels like I'll never be ready — NEVER — but I have no choice. So why am I sitting in the lobby, blogging? I no longer have internet access in my apartment, so I came down to check my email. I won't be hooked up in my NEW apartment until Saturday. So here I sit in an empty lobby writing a blog post to update friends and followers. I won't be back on for a few more days.
Oh, yeah, I got on the blog to say this tiny book is the only thing I've read this week.
