Memories and Reflections of the Father Abbot of La Trappe
  • By Jean Truax, Marie-Gerard DuBois, Georges Hoffmann
Product Description

This is a rich collection of memories and reflections from the long-time abbot of La Trappe, Dom Marie-G rard Dubois, OCSO. Starting with his entry into monastic life, he walks the reader through the dramatic changes in the Strict Observance of the Cistercian Order, including its liturgical reform and developments in the role of lay brothers. Dom Dubois also shares stories about the diverse group of men who entered the Order at that time, including WWII veterans, Holocaust survivors, and members of the French literary elite, and why they decided to become monks. His stories offer a fascinating inside view into twentieth-century Cistercian life.
