    A Day in the Life of a Trappist Monk

    After reading about a Trappist's Monk's Life this, our lives may seem seem exciting. Here's a quick overview:

    3:45 am Vigils
    6:30 am Lauds and Eucharist
    8:45 am Terce
    11:30 am Sext
    1:30 pm None
    5:05 pm Vespers
    7:45 pm Compline

    Where's the Gregorian chanting? (I'll need to sample that sometime).

    Sounds like a great getaway from the busy world. I just need some robes.

    Whew, I don't know how they do it... I'm not sure I could bear it... but at least there must not be much stress!

    Having lived in Belgium for 6 or 7 years, I happen to have learned a few things about their lifestyle.

    Bottom line, they were the happiest monks in the world. It hasn't been mentioned yet, but they were brewers of the best (and strongest) beers in the world.

    To this very day, Trappist beers are a heavy favorite. I wonder if it has anything to do with the 13% alcohol content of some of their beer ? :-)

    My idea was to go to bed. But I think I'll go out, and sip a Leffe. Thank you!

    When you finally get the Garritan Choir ready, please don't release it until it can sing a mass without us having to train it how to speak (it's really difficult for a Texican to teach a computer how to pronounce Latin).

    I guess we'll need properly formatted "doo-wops" also!

    Curious.

    I've never seen or heard a Gregorian Babes library..............

    Read HH's post again, and got mixed up.

    Sorry.
