thanks for posting this , but for some clarification...this video was not 'from' as in made by, Fontgombault, but a general monastic/religious life video promo,by 'RisingsSuns' from his excelent Site at http://www.religious-vocation.com/.

The original is an hour long and was filmed by my friend Jean for his company at the www.exaltavit.com/dvd.html where it can be purchased as DVD.
