Reality TV in monastery changes five lives forever
An amazing story via Angry Twins. I always thought that monasteries should have a program for college age students to live as monks while attending college. The students would do better in college due to the disciplined lifestyle, the monastery would be given workers and some fresh blood, and vocations might follow. For students that don't become monks, they would take some great lessons with them throughout life. Portsmouth Abbey has an intern program that looks good.
