Description

"This booklet aims to help the visitors to St. John's Abbey appreciate and remember in part the works of sacred art assembled in the church, library, and elsewhere on the Collegeville campus. Nearly fifteen hundred years ago St. Benedict in his Rule expressed the hope that even the casual visitor to a monastery would sense the presence of God within its walls and be moved to prayer. It is for this reason that sacred art has retained its prominence in the Benedictine tradition." [from the book's introduction]
