The Monastery : Montefano Our Mother House

pax_logoSt. Benedict refers to the monastery as the work shop of the Lord wherein the monk plies the tools of his spiritual craft. The family spirit forms the very core of the Benedictine life. St. Benedict’s idea of a monastery is that of a spiritual family where the Abbot is the father and the monks brethren in Christ.

Monte Fano is the mother house of the Sylvestro-Benedictine monks in Sri Lanka. Situated on the outskirts of Kandy, in a typical rural setting, Monte Fano stands in perfect harmony with its surroundings. Simple, yet majestic in appearance, it does lend enchantment to the landscape. Its remoteness from the city provides the seclusion and peace necessary for prayer and study, which the monk seek and its salubrious climate and fertile soil keep the inmates healthy and vigorous.

Visitors to the monastery have found the atmosphere awe-inspiring, but to the monks, it is their home on earth, in which is found a truly fraternal spirit and the near hundredfold, which Christ promised to those who, having left their homesteads and their possessions chose to follow Him in a life of dedicated service.
