MONASTIC EVANGELIZATION IN THE MODERN WORLD
Friday, December 15 – Sunday, December 17
Christian monasticism was almost extinguished during the secularizing frenzy of the French Revolution and the Napoleonic wars that followed. Beginning in the early nineteenth century men and women rediscovered the value and beauty of the monastic tradition, and created new Benedictine congregations that revived the monastic practice of evangelization in a variety of new forms. In this workshop, we will consider monastic missionaries, scholars, liturgists, and musicians who renewed the monastic communities we know today, and who offer us unique models of evangelization in our own time.
Father Luke Dysinger has been a monk of Valyermo since 1976. He is a priest and a physician who writes and teaches in the fields of mystical theology and biomedical ethics. He earned a Ph.D. at Oxford University and currently teaches at St. John's Seminary in Camarillo, CA as well as online courses.
