One of the joys of living in an abbey is its collection of priests, inasmuch as we attend Mass every day and we have a variety of presiders. We are blessed with the quality of our priests; most of them have been educated by our seminary college and have received training in a variety of theologates from Rome to Belgium to Washington, D.C., to New Orleans. And, finally, our priests have been seasoned in the challenges of community life, some of them for as long as 60 years. In short, they know the gospels and they know how to break them open so that the words of Christ have a real resonance and meaning in our monastic and seminary lives.

A few years ago, we began to record the homilies of feasts and special occasions. We now have a treasure trove of these reflections to share with you. In the future, we hope to expand our list to include sermons from weekday Masses and the occasional Schola piece as well.

So listen as our abbot and our brothers proclaim the good news of salvation to our community. We think you will find them equally instructive and spiritually valuable.
