Glory to Jesus Christ!
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
In the name of the Commission on Basilian Monasticism, the Sisters of St. Basil the Great are pleased to make available to you a series of conferences on Basilian Monasticism and related topics of interest.
These conferences were delivered to the Commission members during their annual meetings which were held from 2009 – 2012 in Rome, Italy.
I wish to extend my sincere gratitude to each of the distinguished guest speakers for their contribution to the work of the Commission. I, likewise, wish to extend my heartfelt thank you to the Hermitage of the Three Holy Hierarchs, editor and creator of the format for this electronic version of the conferences.
It is the wish and prayer of the Sisters of St. Basil that this humble effort will contribute in some small way to a deeper understanding and appreciation of the monastic way of life as practiced in the Eastern Christian tradition.
May God bless you, dear reader, and may His Light shine upon you and grant you peace.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Sister Miriam Claire Kowal, OSBM
Sisters of the Order of St. Basil the Great
