I copied the following graphic, paragraph and link from the City Cafe page of the Public Broadcasting Atlanta website. It features a four-minute audio clip that has recently been broadcast on WABE, Atlanta’s public broadcasting radio station. Click on the link beneath the image to hear the audio clip; it features chanting by the monks and an interview with one of the brothers from the Monastery of the Holy Spirit in Conyers, Georgia.
Back in 1944 twenty-one Trappist monks left an Abbey in Kentucky to set up a monastery in what was then a very rural Conyers, Georgia. Trappist monks value silence and will generally only speak when necessary. And for decades they’ve worked to uphold their faith and traditions.
