DISCUSSION     This article talks about the difference between hearing or reading about a place and actually visiting it.

  • When have you gained a deeper understanding about a place after visiting the place?Perhaps you visited a historic site, a tourist attraction, or a sacred place.Or you may have seen the aftermath of a disaster like a fire, flood or hurricane.Why are words or pictures inadequate to convey the experience?
  • How can a shared experience bring out the best in people, as described in this article?

Page 8         Subiaco offers a sliver of monastic peace and quiet      

DISCUSSION

  • Do you find the idea of a monastic lifestyle appealing?Would you like to try it for a short time, or even a longer time?
  • Do you think a time away in a quiet place can be a means of spiritual growth?
  • If you were to go away for a quiet retreat, what would you bring with you?Assume that you would not have Internet access, could not bring television, radio, or other electronics, and would have limited access once a day to a shared phone line.
