Elders of the Benedictines:
A Portrait and Interview Project
Sister M. Gregory Cushing, O.S.B., b. 1913
Q: What do you believe are the most important values to uphold and promote?
A: The most important values to uphold are community life, silence, and the acceptance of others as they are. We can promote these by sharing with our brothers and sisters any part of our Benedictine life that is possible for us. We can invite them to experience the silence and solitude of our lives by making retreats here. We can share the importance of the acceptance of others as they are, whenever people come to us for help in their spiritual life.
