Becoming a Monk

One of the novices at the monastery where I work is keeping a blog about his formation process. It’s whimsically titled Becoming Brother Pinocchio. I just learned about it today and so far have only had a chance to just glance at it for a minute or two, but with even my cursory look I could sense its honesty and perception. I think reading it will be a delight for anyone interested in monasticism today.
