Originally published as O Holy Mountain!
over twenty-five years ago and now expanded, this journal of a three month retreat by a Trappist monk (''It may seem strange to some, the idea of a Trappist monk going on retreat. Isn't his whole life a retreat?'') is equally informative of life on the Holy Mountain and the resilient love and vocational determination of the monk Basil. The courtesy and forbearance shown by this Catholic and his Orthodox hosts convey both the depth of difference and the commonalities that transcend such difference. A profoundly hopeful book.
