"Sometimes we are able to see a splendid adventure of life and faith
just at the moment that it is unfolding. And we are able to watch the
struggles and challenges and successes of a man, or of a group of men,
and even to participate with them in that adventure.
Fr. Cassion Folsom, O.S.B.
Such is the case with Father Cassian Folsom and the refounding of the
Benedictine monastery in Norcia, Italy—the birthplace of St. Benedict
in about A.D. 480—which was closed in 1810, and reopened after 190 years
in the year 2000.
For what Father Folsom has done for Norcia, for what he has done for
monasticism in general and Benedictine monasticism in particular, for
what he has done for the Church’s liturgy (for the last three years, the
monastery in Norcia has been offering Holy Mass in both uses of the
Roman Rite, old and new) and for what he has taught all of us about
following Christ by his Christian example, we feel privileged to have
the opportunity to select Cassian Folsom, who is also an old friend, as
our “Person of the Year” for 2011."
