More on that Carthusian Film which we all want to see.

Sandro Magister has a piece up on the continuing success of Into Great Silence, the two and half hour documentary film on the silent life of the Carthusians.

Incidentally, I asked the producers about the films release to the North American market, as well as to DVD, and I am told by those officials that it will be in North America "in the next months". The DVD won't of course come out until after that.

I am hopeful that this film will help stir up interest in monasticism in the West again -- where monasticism has become lost to our Catholic consciousness in many regards.

Perhaps it will also stir again interest in Gregorian chant on a wide scale.
