Father James Stephen Behrens, O.C.S.O. spent most of his youth in northern New Jersey. He was ordained a priest in May 1974 and served as a parish priest for the Archdiocese

of Newark for twenty years. He became interested in and attracted to the aspect of community life, so in July 1994, he moved to the Monastery of the Holy Spirit in Conyers, Georgia. He has held a wide range of jobs while at the monastery – working in their bonsai department, sorting incoming mail, serving as director of their retreat house and various other odds and ends like driving the elderly monks to their doctor appointments. In his spare time, Fr. James does a lot of writing and loves to dabble in photography, especially black and white format.

Father James began writing for publication in 1989 and his essays have appeared in the National Catholic Reporter, Living Faith, Notre Dame Magazine, The Liguorian, Saint Anthony Messenger and other journals and periodicals. ACTA Publications in Chicago has published several of his books – Grace Revisited: Epiphanies from a Trappist Monk; Be Gentle, Be Faithful: Daily Meditations for Busy Christians and Portraits of Grace: Images and Words from the Monastery of the Holy Spirit. His photographs also appear in A Planet of Grace: Images and Words from Biosphere One written by Bernadette McCarver Snyder.
