Bells of the Hours speaks with authentic art out of a well-seasoned experience of the daily monastic life. It bears the authority of more than 50 years of practice, prayer, and reading from a disciplined and ascetic life in a Trappist monastery. Silence, listening, and reflection fill these words, which surprise and refresh the mind interested in ground-level views of a monastery and the distinctive round of work, song, and joy that takes place there.
