Into Great Silence: the wait is almost over

Many will be excited to know that the official Canadian release of the DVD, Into Great Silence, the documentary film which looks into the quiet life of solitude led by the Carthusians at Le Grande Chartreuse, is set for the early spring.

That means you won't have to wait long before, at long last, you will be able to see this rare view in the monastic and liturgical life of these Carthusian monks, and what promises to be a remarkable documentary.

I for one am particularly eager to see what glimpses into the Carthusian liturgical life might be found. I will be providing a review of the DVD here on the NLM of course.
