Hear Our Silence

John Skinner

For the brief period of one summer, John Skinner lived with the English Carthusians at Parkminster.  He worked, ate and prayed with this unique community of hermit monks whose unchanged tradition of prayer goes back 900 years.  Waking at midnight and joining them in church for three hours of prayer at matins; attending the morning Eucharist, much of it prayed in drenching silence; working in the kitchen, digging with them in the kitchen gardens.  It became a healing experience.
