"Twelve years ago I went to Solentiname with two 
brothers
in Christ
to found a small contemplative community...
contemplation 
brought us to the revolution;
and thus it had to be 
because in Latin America
a man of contemplation cannot turn his back
on political struggle..."

from "The Meaning of Solentiname"
