A word from Father Abbot of Notre Dame du Désert abbey
"The monastic life, what is it for?" This is a question we are often asked, ... and often, by jest or provocation, we answer that it is useless, no more than a flower lost in the middle of a field!
Manner of saying that this is actually a question that is difficult to answer. Why ? Because we are touching a double mystery: mystery of a call and mystery of an answer. The call ? That of Christ who invites to leave everything to follow him. The answer ? That of a man or a woman who has been "awakened" by this call and who then decides to inscribe the steps of his life in the footsteps of the One who, in giving himself, gave us everything.
As an echo to this double mystery: double madness!
Madness of the cross: madness of a life delivered - that of Jesus - who goes to the end of the love, of a given life which goes to the end of the gift, so that the men have the life, and May they have it in abundance!
And madness of the answer: that of a man, that of a woman, who accepts one day - day after day - to "lose everything", to "lose oneself", in order to win everything. "What does it really serve the man to win the whole world if he ruins his own life? "(Mark 8:36). So, in response to this Word of Jesus, every monk, every nun, is there then one day happened to say, like St. Paul, but in his own way: "Because of him, I agreed to lose everything in order to win Christ "(Phil 3: 8), ... or again, in the manner of St. Peter, did he come to accept the words of the first of the Apostles and stammer with him:" Lord, to who would we go? You have the words of eternal life "(Jn 6: 68)!
Of course, a website like the one you just entered does not have the pretension, or even the vocation, to answer all the questions that, occasional visitors or even customary monasteries, you could ask yourself about life monastic, on what, mysterious, could well happen behind the seemingly impassable walls of what we call the "fence", this private space "reserved for the monks"! At least this site - in any case, we hope - will offer you the opportunity to discover: better to perceive "something" of those lives of men who, in the Desert, under the Rule of St. Benedict and under the leadership of an abbot, have "engaged" their entire lives in following Christ to receive Him as beloved sons of the Father and, through Him and in the Spirit, to receive one another as brothers united by the bond of charity.
F. Pierre-André, abbot
