Seeking in Solitude examines select forms of contemporary Roman Catholic eremitic life and practice in the United States. Given the sustained presence of, and increased interest in, the eremitic life and practice, this book responds to the question of the place of the hermit in American Catholicism in a way that neither mystifies nor mythologizes it, but rather attempts to understand it.

Unique in the Church, the Camaldolese life is ordered to a three-fold good: solitude, community, and witness. Men and women as hermits live by a monastic rule, committed to both solitude and community life. The discipline of solitude combined with the second good, the rigors of community living are intended to widen the heart in service of the third good: bearing witness to the abundance of God?s love as the self, others, and every living creature are brought into fuller communion in the one Love. The essays in The Privilege of Love convey the richness and the depth of the Camaldolese Benedictine spirit. Their diversity of expression is itself a manifestation of the magnitude of God?s bonding Love. This bonding is the Spirit?s own gift, weaving together the many voices found in these pages?voices of women and men, of monk, hermit, and layperson. The voices speak of historical roots, of the riches found in solitude and the grit of community life, of the psychological strength required in any pursuit of God, of the vulnerability of the human heart which is the home for wisdom?s Word, and of the privilege of being in love with Love itself. Essays and contributors under Part One: A Vision in Context are ?Overview of Camaldolese History and Spirituality,? by Peter-Damian Belisle, O.S.B. Cam. Essays and contributors under Part Two: Sustaining the Spirit are ?An Image of the Praying Church: Camaldolese Liturgical Spirituality,? by Cyprian Consiglio; ?Lectio Divina and Monastic Theology in Camaldolese Life,? by Alessandro Barban; ?Monastic Wisdom: The Western Tradition,? by Bruno Barnhart. Essays and contributors in Part Three: Configurations of a Charism are ?The Threefold Good: Romualdian Charism and Monastic Tradition,? by Joseph Wong; ?Koinonia: The Privilege of Love,? by Robert Hale; ?Psychological Investigations and Implications for Living Together Alone,? by Bede Healey; ?Golden Solitude,? by Peter-Damian Belisle, O.S.B. Cam; ?A Wild Bird, with God in the Center: The Hermit in Community,? by Sr. Donald Corcoran; ?The Camaldolese in Dialogue: Ecumenical and Interfaith Themes in the History of the Camaldolese Benedictines,? by Thomas Matus and Robert Hale; ?The Camaldolese Oblate Program: History, Tradition, Charism,? by Jeffry Spencer and Michael Fish; ?Concluding Remarks?; ?Camaldoli?s Recent Journey and Its Prospects,? by Emanuele Bargellini; Peter-Damian Belisle, O.S.B. Cam., Translator.?The Bibliography for the Study of Camaldolese History and Spirituality,? provides, for the first time anywhere, a comprehensive list of Romualdian/Camaldolese source material.?If a Franciscan has anything to say about monastic wisdom, I think this is excellent spirituality. It is monastic, but also universal. It presumes community, but also offers true individuation. It is solid tradition, but wonderfully contemporary. The book appears to be for hermits, but it is for all those who would love?and love deeply.? Richard Rohr, O.F.M. Center for Action and Contemplation Albuquerque, New Mexico?This is an important collection of articles on Camaldolese history and spirituality from its founding to the present, by those who live the life.?

Prayer is at the heart of the Christian life. Given that we are weak and even sinful human beings, how can it be that God has anything to do with us? What does it mean to have a personal relationship with God? Why is God so silent and hidden? How do we grow in prayer? Personal Prayer: A Guide for Receiving the Father’s Love brings the depth of human experience together with the Catholic tradition of prayer to present the path to an intimate and vulnerable relationship with God. Experienced spiritual directors Fr. Thomas Acklin, OSB, and Fr. Boniface Hicks, OSB, explore the many forms of Catholic prayer and demonstrate that vulnerability is essential to growing in relationship with God. Rich with the wisdom of Scripture, Catholic teaching, and the writings of the saints, Personal Prayer is an exhaustive guide for priests, religious, and laity desiring to receive the Father’s love in a profoundly personal way.
