Epigraph
Dedication
First words
The key word of the spiritual discipline I follow is "listening." This means a special kind of listening, a listening with one's heart. To listen in that way is central to the monastic tradition in which I stand. The very first word of the Rule of St. Benedict is "Listen!" -- "Ausculta!" -- and all the rest of Benedictine discipline grows out of this one initial gesture of wholehearted listening, as a sunflower grous from its seed.
