A Monk’s Alphabet: Moments of Stillness in a Turning World

by Jeremy Driscoll, OSB

Yes, that’s OSB as in Order of Saint Benedict. This Roman Catholic monk and theologian kept a journal of short reflections inspired by contact with various and sundry experiences: Listening to Beethoven, air travel, Washington, D.C, mosquitoes… He alphabetized them by their fanciful titles to create this idiosyncratic alphabet—from anniversary to oyster to Zaccheus. The chapters can be read consecutively or, even more fun, be dipped into randomly for unexpected delights.
