So a little bit ago I was browsing the web and I read this story over at the New Liturgical Movement. Thinking to myself it is a great thing that traditional Benedictines are getting their due with the mainstreams in the Church, which it is, I decided to follow some of the links to find out more.
That led me here: Confoederatio Benedictina Ordinis Sancti Benedicti. Looks pretty good so far but I wanted to see more and figure out whats up with this so I clicked around, which led me to a list of links.
There you will see one interesting link to "Dialogue Interreligieux Monastique / Monastic Interreligious Dialogue." ... I almost don't want to post the link because its somewhat scandalous.
But I guess I will. Try not to get mad when you see this website or throw something through your screen.
"We are the ones we have been waiting for."
What a horror. False sycretism has infected the monasteries it appears. True inter religious dialog is called evangelization. Just because we have monks and Buddhists have monks, it doesn't mean all monks are created equal.
I highly doubt the Barroux monks will be involved in all that, but hopefully they can be a change agent in the confederation they just joined up with.
