  Welcome


The word goes out new. If today you hear His voice, harden not your hearts, but run with the inexplicable joy, to the Father who loves you. Do you wish the good life? Then run with all your might to do what will profit you all of your life. Listen, listen to the voice that is calling you. If the road may seem difficult at first, don't worry. For if you persevere, you will find the love of God, you will find peace. And you will know that love and joy that surpasses understanding.

Consider, the Benedictine way of life. Come together as brothers who all desire life, and life to the fullest. Live the gospel life. Pray and share a vision 1500 years old. Live a life of faith, hope and love. In the monastic life these are akin to following God's call to life abundant, to loving and truth; stability, doing what will profit you for all of your life.


Are you interested? You can stay in the world, but come together to do worship and prayer. Wear the
Benedictine habit. Be a community of brothers that shares the Benedictine life. Chant the divine office, gather for a weekly supper and mass. Make a difference in your life and the life of the world.

Find meaning, find hope for your life. Be at peace and
let us find it together in the monastic community of
St. Benedict.
You qualify, if you desire to be part of the community. You don't have to be a Catholic, we're ecumenical. All are welcome. Just be sincere, just be
honest, and wish to be a part of an age old tradition;
one seeking God in love, prayer and community.


Express your interest by responding to the call. Since we are in San Diego, it would be necessary to be in the area to be a part of the physical community.Know, that if you are interested in what you have read, God may be calling you to the monastic life. Pray, ask any questions you may have. Be bold in pursing what God may be calling you to; the monastic life in the Community of St. Benedict.

     Thought for Week

Forgive me for not keeping the website current. I've been away at seminary and then back home again studying which keeps me reading and writing. I'm doing a graduate program in Anglican studies. Hopefully, I'll get back to writing the thought for the week on our Sundays Gospel reading. Please bear with me and keep
me in your prayers.


Jesus tells us to fear not; it's His pleasure to give us the kingdom. Let us build up our treasure in things of the heart. Then our heart will be in heaven and it will never waste away!

  God bless you, Fr. Larry OSB

    Fear Not Little Flock!   
My Savior, My Lord                                          by Shea Rossetti

If I am weak, You carry me in Your arms.

When I am empty, You fill my cup.

Your love rushes through me.

Your strength leads me in the right direction.

Happiness does not exist without You.

The only way to Heaven is through You.

You take away the sins of the world.

You fill me with joy and take away my fears.

When I pray, You bring peace to my frightened soul.

I could not survive without Your touch.

Happiness does not exist without You.

The only way to Heaven is through You.

If You show me the way, I will forever follow.

I thank You for the life I have; in return, I give You my soul.

You are the most high, my everlasting light.

Hold me tight to Your heart, for I will serve You always, Lord.

           Collect for the Feast
                 of St. Clare

God of mercy, you inspired
St Clare with the love of poverty. By the help of her prayers may we follow Christ in poverty of spirit and come to the joyful vision of your glory
in the kingdom of heaven.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Jesus said to his disciples, "Do not be afraid, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
            the Gospel of St. Luke 12:32
Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you.
Deep peace of Christ,
of Christ the light of the world to you.
Deep peace of Christ to you.
