The White Robed Monks of St. Benedict serve the Contemporary Catholic and all people. Their outlook is that of a Catholic Spirituality (experience: love/compassion) rather than religion (belief: fear, guilt, shame, blame). Accordingly, they educate about the nondual Mind of A Child so the Kingdom of God may be experienced at-hand. (Matt. 18:1-4) Thus, they are neither Roman nor Orthodox, Liberal nor Old Catholic. The White Robed Monks of St. Benedict are just Catholic.
The Monks, in the traditional spirit of Benedictine hospitality, offer without question the Word and Sacraments to everyone who requests them. The Monks appreciate that Jesus never really said No to anyone who came to Him and He had only two commandments: Love God, Love Neighbor. (Matt 22:37-40, Jn 15:17) Maintaining simplicity, they are neither institutionalized nor bureaucratic. Given their monastic orientation, they appreciate God through the eyes of the early Church rather than an institutional church. They are an independent Catholic jurisdiction in the tradition of the Old Catholic Church (Brief History of the Old Catholic Church). Their clergy come from the Roman and other Catholic jurisdictions. Their general purpose is to let the world be a more compassionate place of child-like wonderment inviting peace and joy.
