Elders of the Benedictines:
A Portrait and Interview Project
Father Bernard Sander, O.S.B., b. 1918
Q: How does the Benedictine tradition serve as foundation for the way you live your physical life?
A: I can plan to be around here. Living in this beautiful spot on the mountain, looking at the valley all around is an inspiring physical environment. Our community is a permanent one. We are able to help each other. We have physical security in knowing the community will always take care of us. It is a family inspired institution. We are part of a community that serves people educationally and spiritually in an enthusiastic and dedicated life.
