Webster Young discusses The Little Flowers of the Desert Brothers
The Little Flowers of the Desert Brothers is a collection of true anecdotes and stories, many having an allegorical and mystical aspect, reported from various monasteries of the American West. The anecdotes form a tapestry that is unlike anything that has appeared before on the subject of monasteries and mysticism, revealing poetry, humor, and truth. Anyone who has read Thomas Merton will enjoy this.
The author has visited Catholic monasteries of the American West his entire adult life. From 2003-13 he was able to observe current monastic life from an insider’s perspective.
