"St. Benedict's Rule"

For those not too offended by Christian persuasions, I just watched St. Benedict's Rule, a paced and patient presentation of life at Conception Abbey in Missouri here in the U.S.

I am not trying to play the 'ecumenical' card by mentioning this (ecumenism makes my teeth itch horribly), but I was interested that some of the practices and difficulties might have come right out of a Zen monastery.
