Paul Quenon

Paul Quenon, OSCO, is a monk of the Abbey of Gethsemani. Brother Paul cooks, sings a lot in and out of choir, hikes and meditates outdoors. He puts words together into something like a poem, and shoots a camera at something like a picture. Some say he’s only something like a monk, but he has stopped guessing about that after 50 years in the monastery. He is the author of Terrors of Paradise, Laughter: My Purgatory, and Monkswear.
