In the second of three blogs on new monasticism, Greg Valerio looks at why the Imitation of Christ is so important to the new monastic praxis.
In this blog on The Rule of St.Columba we explore the idea of spiritual aloneness linked to being accessible and connected. It explores the Columban spiritual tension of being connected and alone in the same breath.
In this Society of St. Columba series on the characteristics of prayer, Greg Valerio explores the nature of our spiritual journey to Paradise. Are we traveling the wide road or the narrow path. He reflects on St. Columba's simple injunction to pray as the foundation for the spiritual journey to the Paradise of the Soul.
