Subiaco Abbey, Subiaco, Arkansas
March 11-14, 2014
David Jr. and David Sr. spent a quiet few days with the monks at Subiaco Abbey, a community of roughly 40 Benedictine priests and brothers. We participated in the "Ora et Labora" way of life which comes from their adherence to the Rule of St. Benedict. The "Ora" part meant starting the day with Morning Prayer with the community at 5:45AM, and finishing the day with Vespers with the community at 7:00 PM. We also got to experience the "Labora" part too. Our host, Father Mark, invited us to help him in some landscaping work on Thursday afternoon.
