With Christ - The Gospel under the Guidance of Saint Benedict
While spending almost a year in retreat at the Abbey of Tamié, Jean-François Baudoz, a biblical scholar, was inspired to write this spiritual journey. Far from presenting a collection of "pious pieces of advice," this journey proposes to restore our inner unity, by focusing on the figure of Christ, the very core of our growth in faith and yet often remote from our concerns.
With Christ draws from three sources: daily life with its joys, its rifts, and its times of transition; the Rule of Saint Benedict, centered on the hearing and welcoming of God's Word; and finally the Gospel and the words of Jesus.
Could it be that the man from Nazareth, followed step by step, from the desert to Jerusalem, from the parables to the silence of the cross, is the one to open for us an authentic inner truth?
