This is a collection of short meditations on the monastic discipline of ordinary life. Moore was a monk for 12 years, and he draws on that experience to illuminate structures and disciplines of everyday existence, but the illumination shines both ways: he is a literate, informed, and careful participant observer, and his meditations are full of practical insights for life together inside and outside monastic orders. The collection is as much about the poetry and music of our lives together as about overly religious discipline; he concludes with the insight that "the truly artful life, not the merely aesthetic one, is religious, and vice versa." These meditations are as indebted to the spirit of Marcus Aurelius as to the Roman Catholic tradition of monasticism; they begin and end, as he did, with the conviction that "chance" is not separated from nature, that "providence" and "necessity" are side by side, and that all are woven together into that which "works to the advantage of the whole universe of which we are a part."
