Living the Mystery

Monastic Markers on the Christian Way

Dom Hugh Gilbert, OSB

In this book, following the highly successful Unfolding the Mystery, Abbot Hugh reflects before his monastic brethren on some of the elements common to the life of all Christians—from baptism to the hope of eternal life. Here it is a question of Living the Mystery, that is, of allowing the revelation of Christ in us, present in the Church, to take possession of our whole life, personal and social.

Unfolding the Mystery

Monastic Conferences on the Liturgical Year

Hugh Gilbert, OSB

This selection from conferences delivered originally to Abbot Hugh’s monastic “family” are of immense relevance to all Christian men and women looking for props to underpin their lives of faith in a society that does not understand their values. Readers will find fascinating glimpses of what it means to follow Christ as a Benedictine, will nourish the life of faith in the ancient monastic traditions, reflect on the place of Christian virtues in life, find comfort and strength in the wisdom of Scripture and the Fathers, and will relish the taste of the Liturgy of the Church and the Rule of St. Benedict.
