Publisher's description: The Inner Room takes you on one man's journey into a largely invisible vocation-lay monasticism. "The lay monastic dons no habit, wears no distinguishing ornament, lives not in a monastery," says the author. Yet, many people today are being led by the Holy Spirit to discover this new way to Jesus Christ. In The Inner Room, follow Mark Plaiss's journey, first into the Catholic Church and then into his vocation as lay monastic, while maintaining his family and professional life. The author recounts his experience of work and prayer in the monastery in his annual retreats, as well as his experience of being a lay monastic outside the monastery. Daily and psalm schedules at New Melleray Abbey are included, as well as an essay on lay monasticism the author presented to the 2000 convention of the American Benedictine Academy.
