BROTHER PAUL, O.C.S.O. at Gethsemani Abbey
Brother Paul Quenon, a Trappist monk of the Abbey of Gethsemani in northern Kentucky and a poet who was inspired to write by his mentor and fellow monk Thomas Merton, says, “The purpose of the monastic life in the modern world is to show that we don’t need a purpose. The purpose of life is life.” See a profile of Brother Paul at Religion & Ethics Newsweekly.
