The holy monk left a very short rule to follow that can open your soul to God’s presence.
After leading a life of sin, Romuald fled the world and became a monk, but was not satisfied with the rigors of the community. He joined a Benedictine monastery, but then traveled around Italy, reforming monasteries and hermitages. He eventually settled down and established a monastery that would later be known as the Camaldolese order.
Romuald left a “Brief Rule” that is simple, yet profound. It can help us in our prayer life and lead to interior peace.
