Camaldolese Oblates


The Christian monastic tradition can be traced back at least to the 3rd century, and there have been Oblates connected with monastic communities, in various ways, practically from the beginning. Camaldolese Benedictine Oblates continue in this great tradition. Our Oblates are lay persons or members of other orders or diocesan clergy who seek to live a life in harmony with God through the Camaldolese Oblate Rule, striving to incorporate its values and spirituality into their lives.

Over 500 men and women from all over the world have become Camaldolese Oblates. They regularly return to the New Camaldoli Hermitage and/or to Incarnation Monastery for spiritual retreat, as well as attending, when possible, retreats conducted in northern and southern California for active oblate groups.

An 11th century Pope affirmed:
The Oblate's profession deserves nothing but praise, and it is worthy to endure, being as it is a reproduction of the primitive state of the Church. We therefore approve of it and confirm it and style it a Holy and Catholic institution.

     (Bull of Urban II, addressed to the Abbot of Hirschau)

    Our Brother Emmaus O'Herlihy has recently completed four large canvases which now hang in our refectory.
    They represent the Camaldolese "threefold good" spirituality. The canvas second from the left depicts St. Romuald,
    in weeping for joy in ecstasy (as related in his Life by St. Peter Damian). His charism draws the brethren:
    the canvas to the immediate right of the Romuald canvas, with the two monks and Scripture represents the first good
    of community life, bonded by the Word of God. The canvas to the immediate left of Romuald, with the monk alone
    praying the Jesus Rosary, represents the good of solitude in the Lord. And the monks in the canvas of the far
    right represent the good of mission, the two monks prepared to head out in different directions to witness the Gospel,
    even to death if necessary. Each Camaldolese--monk and Oblate, seeks to live this threefold good.

    New Camaldoli Hermitage

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Jump to: navigation, search


    New Camaldoli Hermitage (officially called Immaculate Heart Hermitage) is a rural Camaldolese Benedictine hermitage in the Santa Lucia Mountains of Big Sur, California that overlooks the Pacific Ocean. The hermitage was founded in 1958 by two hermits from Italy searching for a site that combined solitude and natural beauty. It is located at an altitude of approximately 1,300 feet (400 m), and is approached by a winding two-mile road, which gives the visitor a clear view of the spectacular landscape.

    [edit] Daily Life

    Approximately twenty monks live and work at the hermitage. Each monk lives in a small cottage, called a "cell," which is divided from its neighbors by a high wall, and includes a small garden. Weekday prayers begin with vigils at 5:30 A.M. and conclude with vespers at 6 P.M. Labors include a guest ministry, retreats, a bakery, a book store, cooking and writing.

    [edit] Fruitcake

    The hermitage makes and ships their own fruitcake based on a recipe developed by the monks. The proceeds help to support the hermitage.

    [edit] Retreats

    Retreatants are welcome and over 150,000 people have made retreats at the hermitage. Rooms for men and women are available as well as separate hermitages for longer retreats. Normally all retreats are silent and non-directed.

    [edit] Location

    The rugged and striking beauty of the site is not without peril. Route 1--the famed Pacific Coast Highway, which provides the only access by car--has been closed for months at a time by mudslides, and collapsed entirely in 1998. The hermitage was spared from destruction several times by forest fire; in 1999, the monks were ordered to evacuate as the fire grew closer. El Nino rains, high winds and continuing seismic activity have further damaged buildings. The hermitage is now in the process of rebuilding several older buildings in need of repair.
