Learning from Hermits in a Covid19 World

I think we, who live outside monastery walls, can learn a lot from those who live within them – especially at this time with so many of us staying in our homes as a world-wide attempt to break the chain of Covid-19 and save lives. You will find a lot about Carthusians on this site (put “Carthusian” or “Carthusians” in the search box). They have a lot to teach us in our Covid-19 context. The 10 minute video above points to some of those lessons.

    Exactly Bosco! As I live at present, In a big old house, that has been divided into 4 separate units, I get this way of living!
    Our bubble is 4 people ( ages range 30 to 75 yrs) and a dog. 2 of us work in Healthcare as essential workers so are out of the
    Bubble to work daily/nightly. One is maintaining the grounds and the other has taken on maintenance eg; my push bike, etc..

    Blessings Ruth
