Abbey of Kervennec Series
A Monk’s Way
Jean Moreau, a modern Benedictine monk at the Abbey of Kervennec in Brittany, France, is in trouble. For twenty years he has coasted along in the daily routine of the monastery, living and working and praying with his brother monks. His complacency is suddenly interrupted by the appearance in his life of an old flame. Eventually, at loose ends, he finds himself in a compromising position, a position duly noted by his power-hungry and delusional abbot.
A Monk’s Way describes Jean’s journey back to faith, making the point that true spirituality comes via direct connection to God as opposed to merely following the blind dogma of a religion. Always tactful and insightful, Jean Moreau helps the reader of A Monk’s Way develop the tools necessary to cultivate its sine qua non – Awareness – in order to arrive at a meaningful and mindful direct relationship with God.
