Ramsey, the Rule of St. Benedict, and the Book of Common Prayer

[The portrait of Archbishop Ramsey was painted by George J. D. Bruce in 1961, the year Ramsey was consecrated Archbishop of Canterbury]

[Hood-doff to Fr. Matthew Cuthbert Dallman, Obl.S.B., who posted this on his _English Spirituality_ page on Facebook]

“So it is that the Benedictine Way really underlies the Book of Common Prayer, where the same trinity of liturgy, office and personal prayer is found for the joy of us all.”

—Archbishop Michael Ramsey (15 July 1965 at Nashdom Abbey)
