This book is a celebration of St. Benedict's Trappist/Cistercian Monastery in Snowmass, Colorado. St. Benedict's was founded from St. Joseph's Abbey in Spencer, Massachusetts, in 1956. This volume has been prepared to mark the golden anniversary of the monastery, to share something of the monk's life of work and prayer, and to illustrate how the monks of Snowmass, in the words of the Rule of St. Benedict, "through daily life in our Cistercian community aspire to be transformed in mind and heart by embodying Jesus Christ in ways appropriate to our times." The photography illustrates the life of the monks as inspired by the two most important monastic guidelines, the Rule of St. Benedict and the Psalter.
