QuotationDom Alexis Presse-"A l'ecole de St. Benoît" ["In the School of St. Benedict"] has some very nice things-a good sense of balance everywhere. But not in his chapter on the office. Defending the Opus Dei on a kind of aristocratic basis-Opus Dei, in Latin, sung is far above what the base ordinary faithful would ordinarily like. All the rest-sentimentalism etc.
Quotation SourceA Search for Solitude: Pursuing the Monk's True Life. The Journals of Thomas Merton, Volume 3, 1952-1960.; Edited by Lawrence S. Cunningham. / San Francisco : Harper Collins. 1996, p. 117
