This rule of life is – in Christ – the heart and soul of the most successful religious order in history. Written by a spiritual father for his children, The Rule of St. Benedict is not only an ideal guide for the individual wishing to follow the Benedictine path; it is also an indispensable tool for the spiritualization of family life. A timeless classic by the founder of Western monasticism.
The Rule of Saint Benedict – Translated with an introduction by Cardinal Gasquet. The text of this edition has been digitally reset so as faithfully to reproduce that of the 1925 edition of The Rule of Saint Benedict originally published by Chatto & Windus, London.
Building Something Beautiful For God –
To Last A Thousand Years
Our Lady of Clear Creek Abbey is a Benedictine community belonging to the Solesmes Congregation and, like other monasteries of the Solesmes Congregation, is to be counted among the institutes entirely ordered towards contemplation. It was founded in 1999 from the Abbey of Our Lady of Fontgombault in France and is located in the Diocese of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Clear Creek became an abbey in 2010 and counts 55 monks, who devote themselves to God alone in the hidden life, in silence and solitude, in constant prayer and willing penance.
After twenty years of existence, we are happy, by the grace of God, to have completed two large buildings and a sizable portion of our abbatial church. We started building the “Chapter House” to accommodate the growing number of monks and provide a Sacristy, Infirmary, classrooms and the Chapter itself. Please help us continue this arduous, but important work for the glory of God.
