The Stanbrook Abbey located in Wass, York, is the home of a group of Benedictine nuns, initially founded by seventeen-year-old Sister Gertrude More. The order originated in 1625, with the profession of nine young English exiles who vowed to follow St. Augustine Baker\'s interior search for God by training the mind, will and heart. The community began to develop under the rule of St. Benedict, and a permanent home was found at Stanbrook, England in 1838. The nuns are dedicated to the service of God and His Church in addition to contemplative prayer, nourished by the popular practice of Lectio Devina. The community moved in May 2009 to a monastery in Yorkshire and continues to strive to find the love of Christ in ordinary daily tasks.
Anne: The Life of Ven. Anne de Guigne (1911-1922)by Stanbrook, Thomas A. Nelson
Anne de Guigne (1911-1922) began life as a difficult child - proud, bossy and strong-willed. But a profound change took place in her at age 4, and for the rest of her life the "little tyrant" turned all the resources of her heart and will to the practice of perfect obedience.
