Quote from: MonksofNorcia
In the Jubilee year 2000 the monks of Norcia breathed new life into the birthplace of St Benedict. Armed with only their faith and zeal they founded a monastic community which has been attracting men from all over the world to follow St. Benedict's ancient Rule. Many of their friends have long wanted an insight into the inner workings of their life and so they have produced this high quality up to date film which shows the monks as they go through the daily ora et labora. The title of the film, "Quaerere Deum", means to Seek God. This is the true calling of all monks, the first and most essential quality of an authentic monastic vocation, as laid out in the Rule of our Holy Father St. Benedict.

With God, all things are possible.  Keep praying, brother!

Here is an abbey in the Benedictine tradition in Oklahoma that follows the "old" style monasticism. Interesting to look at the various Benedictine monasteries online and see the ones that use latin and the pre-vatican 2 roman missal have younger members versus the aging post vatican 2 liberal koom-by-ya type monks.

My brother sent this to me. I think that monastery is great. They post recordings of some of their services on their blog. The recordings are very beautiful.

I'm pretty sure the story which one of the monks read aloud in english is from a vision of saint Nikodemos.

Possibly. They actually have a list of the readings that have been done during meals on their website. There are a few Orthodox authors on the list such as Elder Sophrony of Mt. Athos and Fr. Alexander Schememann. I don't see St. Nikodemos on the list though.
