Award for Anselm Grün's Book “Survive by Working”
The latest book of Fr. Anselm Grün, a Benedictine monk from the Munsterschwarzach Monastery in Baveria, Germany, has been awarded first prize for non-fiction in the International com-petition “St. Benedict, Patron of Europe and of Cassino.” Published by the Daughters of St. Paul, “Sopravvivere lavorando” (“Survive by Working”) focuses on the theme of work today as compared with the Benedictine vision of it.
The author proposes that people with demanding professional responsibilities can combat stress by means of a deeplylived spirituality, honest self-perception, meditation and prayer and, above all, practice of “classic” virtues like positive attitudes and loyal behavior in the workplace.
The award ceremony took place on 11 March at Cassino, Italy.
