How our monastery rose from the ashes

The the monastery and Basilica of St. Benedict in Norcia, birthplace of the great saint, was all but destroyed in the 2016 earthquake. The building is a ruin, but, as one monk writes, We have not abandoned the town but, by making virtue of necessity and living a more truly monastic life in the peace and quiet of our mountainside, we can be better custodians of the birthplace of St Benedict . . .”
