Abbot Jeremy and the monks of Mount Angel Abbey

The pilgrimage of life ...

The summer issue of Mount Angel Letter is out now, with several stories dovetailing the theme of this year’s Saint Benedict Festival: Life as a pilgrimage. The center spread story gives the views of several monks reflecting on monastic life as the ultimate pilgrimage. In the community of Mount Angel, each monk is headed toward the same goal of eternal life, but no one wants to go on his own!
