Benedictines figure in BBC look at seclusion

I WISH all monks were as good a scribe as Dom Giles Conacher, the Cellarer of Pluscarden Abbey, in Elgin, in Moray, who keeps me regularly supplied with news of the northernmost Benedictine Abbey in the world. It featured in the Selina Scott BBC TV series A Cloistered Life, broadcast on 17 February. Selina took the road in Scotland in search of people who have found their own kind of freedom, Pluscarden has chosen to keep to the Latin in the Mass and the divine office, rendering of the epistle, and gospel, the lessons and various blessings in English. The monks have the unique privilege of wearing a white habit instead of the more usual Benedictine black.
