A Calling


“A Calling reminds us very clearly that the path God calls us to walk may be quite unlike the one we have planned to travel. It may be not just a path but an odyssey, and it may lead to something very different from anything we may have thought of.”

-Father Benedict J. Groeschel, C.F.R.
From the Preface

Abbot William’s recently published autobiography
is now available for purchase from
Amazon.com or  Leonine Publishers

The monastic ideal of contemplation is very much alive today. Abbot William, founder of the Maronite Monks of Adoration, recounts his own journey through the tumultuous ’70s and ’80s to find this ideal. Follow the abbot as he navigates through Rogerian psychology, pop theology, and mere humanistic ideologies that invaded the Church. The modern world’s compromises ultimately cannot satisfy the pangs of a contemplative heart. The abbot’s journey is one of finding peace with fidelity to the monastic idea of adoring the Lord.”
