By Br. David Steindl-Rast, OSB
Brother David tells his incomparably rich life story. Beginning with his childhood in Vienna, he describes his time during World War II and his years as a student after the war, his family’s emigration to the US and his entry into the then newly founded Benedictine monastery, Mount Saviour, in the state of New York. There, he soon began looking for what were then still untrodden spiritual paths with undiscovered entryways to non-Christian religions.
Thereafter, contemplation and periods of public life alternated with Brother David. Mysticism is his mission but not a mysticism devoid of connection to the world. His is a mysticism of the everyday, of life immediate in the now, of experiencing fully. He is convinced that God’s spirit speaks in and to us all.
