About Fr. Stephanos

Fr. Stephanos Pedrano, O.S.B.A Benedictine monk and priest of the Order of St. Benedict at Prince of Peace Abbey in California. I grew up a brown, Filipino, immigrant, naturalized U.S. citizen and Navy brat on various islands in the Pacific Ocean and on the California coast. I’m here chewing on the Gospels of the Eucharistic Covenant Rite, the Mass, hoping they’ll help me figure out that vow St. Benedict gave us monks: conversatio morum, “ongoing conversion.” In other words: Turn. Love. Repeat.
