From August 12-16, Fr. Terrence Kardong, OSB, of Assumption Abbey in Richardton, North Dakota, conducted our annual community retreat. Fr. Terrence is a highly respected scholar of things Benedictine. He has written a lengthy commentary on the Rule of St. Benedict, as well as a shorter work titled The Benedictines for a series on various religious orders, and has been editor of the American Benedictine Review for more than thirty years. His retreat conferences focused on chapter 72 of the Rule, the chapter on “The Good Zeal of Monks.” We are grateful to have had such an experienced and insightful monk serve as our retreat master this year.
