Description

Soldier, Artist, Monk is a collection by Brother Placid Stuckenschneider OSB of his thoughts and memories that covers over fifty years. He grew up in Montana, but soon found himself on board a US Troop Ship leaving San Francisco harbor. Pacific Stars and Stripes was the first publication to publish drawings by "Stucky" when he was serving at the end of World War II in the Philippines and Japan.After a brief sojourn at Layton School of Art, Milwaukee, Stuckenschneider entered the Benedictine monastery of Saint John's Abbey in Minnesota to try his vocation. For many years his work enhanced publications of Liturgical Press. Throughout his life as a monk he sought to balance the three primary elements of Benedictine monastic life: Work, Reading and Prayer. Brother Placid died at Collegeville on Saturday, 24 February 2007, less than a month after receiving the first copy of Soldier, Artist, Monk.
