6.  Quaerere Deum (Seek God) – Documentary

In the Jubilee year 2000 the monks of Norcia breathed new life into the birthplace of St Benedict. Armed with only their faith and zeal they founded a monastic community which has been attracting men from all over the world to follow St. Benedict’s ancient Rule. Many of their friends have long wanted an insight into the inner workings of their life and so they have produced this high quality up to date film which shows the monks as they go through the daily ora et labora. The title of the film, “Quaerere Deum”, means to Seek God. This is the true calling of all monks, the first and most essential quality of an authentic monastic vocation, as laid out in the Rule of our Holy Father St. Benedict.


7.  The Monastery Reality TV Series (BBC 2005)

Below are the YouTube videos of an immensely inspiring documentary produced by the BBC in 2005 entitled ‘The Monastery’

Two hundred and fifty people responded to advertisements inviting them to spend 40 days in a Benedictine monastery in the UK, living alongside the monks. Five men were chosen from the 250 applicants and all 5 of them are non-Catholics and had little or no experience of Catholicism or monastic life. The objective of the programme was to ascertain if the 1500 years rule of St Benedict and the Benedictine monastic traditions have something to offer for today’s world.

There are a total of 18 parts. Following the 18 parts, there is a final programme (about 1 hour) called The Monastery Revisited where the 5 participants were invited back, after 18 months, to the monastery for a weekend to review how that 40 days retreat have impacted their lives in the 18 months after.
