Television doesn’t really play a part in our monastic life, though we sometimes do get to see a film at recreation on big solemnities. We have a TV set which we bought to see the funeral of Pope John Paul, and we dusted it for use again for the election of Pope Benedict and then for his visit to England.
In the next weeks our monastery will be featuring on EWTN. Our TV expertise doesn’t stretch to helping you find this, but we are told certain satellite channels can pick it up in the UK. Along with Arundel Castle, our abbey church was used to film a series of Lenten meditations by various priests. We have seen clips and the photography look magnificent. Happy Lent!
