The fingerprints of 50+ years: Father David Brown’s remarkable legacy at Belmont Abbey College
Those of us outside the monastery are naturally curious about what life might be like on the inside. After more than 50 years as a Benedictine — putting one foot in front of the other, as he describes it — Fr. David Brown, OSB, provides a glimpse into the heart of monastic life. He embodies the Benedictine hallmarks of stability and obedience, prayer and conversatio, discipline, stewardship, humility, hospitality, community, and love.
