St Benedict's rule

When I first started going to the monestary I had a vision of 3 men standing in front of me while I slept, I was conscious of where I was and I couldn't hear what they were talking about but one guy was clearly disagreeing with the others. 

I continued to return to Kopua over the next 15 years and after marrying moved to Norsewood a small village 10km away.

In this first post I want to write about the way of monastic life and my experiences, the people who play a good part in my formation. Becoming more Christ-like is so hard, even with the awesome power of the Sacraments. Sin is always easy and very close by.

I have been reading "Merton" and the vow of stability is moving me to a greater degree of humility/humiliation this is a good but difficult time for me.
