hank you so much for visiting our website and purchasing from our e-commerce store. We have expanded this site now to include many products that are specifically Camaldolese: besides our famous fruitcakes and datenut cakes, and our Holy Granola, you will find here also books, music, and art by our monks, as well as artisanal products from the Antica Farmacia at our motherhouse of Camaldoli in Tuscany. Our simple monastic life of prayer, work, and study depends to a large extent of the generosity of our friends and benefactors. But we also feel that very penny earned is very much in keeping with the Rule of Saint Benedict who says that, "Then they are really monks, when they live by the work of their hands (RB 48:8)." So, we are deeply grateful for your support of our work and our prayer, and offer you our humble thanks and blessings.”
Peace and Blessings,
Rev. Cyprian Consiglio, OSB Cam.
