Quaerere Deum

Final Release of Quaerere Deum.

Eight years ago, our close friends, Tom Kolenberg and Eric Griffin, produced our first short video which gave a glimpse into our life. The video was an immediate success. But within a short time, we realized that a new video would be necessary which could illustrate the tremendous growth of the community and in a longer format, depict more aspects of our daily life. Inspired by the full length documentary of Carthusian life, “Into Great Silence” we sought to produce a medium length film of high quality which would expose those far away from us to the inner workings of our life. Thus the idea of “Quaerere Deum” was born. The title comes from the first task of all monks, To Seek God, as described by the Rule of St Benedict. We especially want to thank Peter Hayden, brother of our Br. Evagrius, who gave of his time and talent to produce this wonderful film. May God continue to bless him and the work he does, as well as all of our friends who watch this video. Without further ado, we present to you “Quaerere Deum”. Please feel free to pass this along to others.”
