Discernment and Entering Community

As the Rule [of St. Benedict] describes, entering a community is a process and requires discernment. This is not because the community is any kind of elite. But because the full benefit of entering demands the clearest possible understanding of ones reasons and of the call to which one is responding.

Laurence Freeman, O.S.B.
