Realmente un libro necesario para introducirse en la belleza de la vida monástica cisterciense.
Merece el apelativo de clásico y cualquier persona abierta al Espíritu Santo va a disfrutar mucho de su lectura

A very good introduction to the Cistercian order. Its history and customs. I has been years since I read this so can't give the best review,but I would most certainly recommend it for anyone interested in the Cistercian Order (including the Strict Observance aka Trappists) or an interest in Catholic religious life in general.

A fascinating look at the way of monks followed the Cistercian habit. I found how they value God's Word, community, and holiness to be worthy of imitation. I could not follow the path of these monks, and I can't entirely agree with some of their theology. Despite this, there is much to admire in those who choose this path.
