The Cloister Walk – a re-read

“Just the knowledge that a good book is awaiting one at the end of a long day makes that day happier.” Kathleen Norris

I’m re-reading The Cloister Walk by Kathleen Norris. Like Ms. Norris, I too grew up in a Protestant home, unfamiliar with the Benedictines or the monastic lifestyle. Her brief entries, arranged by calendar dates and celebrations, highlight the  joy and grace in simple routines and rituals. It is a very autobiographical book, yet I think  it strikes a chord with anyone who is looking to live a quietly relevant Christ-centered life in a chaotic world.
