Comentary & Internet Info
THE EMPTY CATHEDRAL
If Love would be built using the square and the compass,
then Faith would be a Cathedral—always empty.
“ . . . beneath the clouds cry/
the cranes; the rustle of dry/
leaves raked by the wind. . . “
. . . an ocean of mundane happiness has boundaries. . .
. . . a drop of heavenly happiness is boundless. . .
“. . . saffron cups now are/
filled with dew—the narcissus /
of this Holy Easter. . . ”

"INTO GREAT SILENCE”
Into Great Silence (German: Die Große Stille) is a documentary film directed by Philip Gröning that was first released in 2005. It is an intimate portrayal of the everyday lives of Carthusian monks of the Grande Chartreuse, high in the French Alps (Chartreuse Mountains). The idea for the film was proposed to the monks in 1984, but the Carthusians said they wanted time to think about it. The Carthusians finally contacted Gröning 16 years later to say they were now willing to permit Gröning to shoot the movie, if he was still interested. Gröning then came alone to live at the monastery, where no visitors were ordinarily allowed, for four and a half months starting in mid-March 2002. He filmed and recorded the sound on his own, using no artificial light. Additional shooting of the documentary took place in December and January; Gröning spent a total of six months filming in the monastery and took about two and a half years to edit the film before its release. The film has neither commentary nor sound effects added, consisting only of images and sounds of the rhythm of monastic life.”
