Documentary filmed, produced, and edited by Peter Hayden and Wilderland FIlm Studios.
On December 2, 2000, a tiny band of American monks with faith and courage and not much else re-founded monastic life inNorcia, Italy at the birthplace of St. Benedict. Powerful forces hostile to the faith had expelled the monks in 1810 and almost two centuries were to pass before Providence brought them back.
Inspired by the Holy Rule, these monastic pioneers are going
back to the roots of the Benedictine tradition. Chanting the
Divine Office in Latin by day and by night at the very place
where their holy patron was born, they are able to return to the spirit of their founder, as Vatican II urged all religious to do, in a very tangible way.

As a result, something extraordinary is happening in Norcia.
Young men from around the world, leaving home and country for the love of Christ, are drawn to the new monastery and
commit themselves to stability, conversion of life and obedience at the birthplace of their founder. Their goal is focused and
compelling: to prefer nothing whatever to the love of Christ!

Pas la peine de mettre le Concile Vatican II en avant pour ça ! comme si les autres conciles "doctrinaux" eux, n'avaient pas promu la vie monastique authentique concrètement ! c'est plutôt ce fichu Concile "pastoral" qui a tout mis par terre ... et certains, comme ces moines essaient de rebâtir ce qui a été détruit, pas seulement depuis 1810, mais par des hommes d'Eglise depuis 1962 ! quel désert depuis ... et sur la terre entière !
