Read A Right to Be Merry doc Å Paperback À Can life really be merry inside a Poor Clare cloister? This happy book reveals the challenges cares and joys of that cloistered life from an insiders view The poet's cry O world I cannot hold you close enough is the heart's cry of the enclosed contemplative No one who has not lived in a cloister Ns Their hearts may be wide as the universe and bottomless as eternity but the practical details of their living are boxed up into the small area within the enclosure walls Cloistered nuns rub souls as well as elbows all their lives and if they do not step out of themselves to get a true perspective they can become small souled and petty and remain immature children I'm not religious but this book creates such a peaceful image I considered becoming a cloistered nun at times It's not a particularly exciting book but her joy leaks through every page
