Our friends at Catholic Exchange have announced a new daily feature, starting at 6 p.m. today:  a live session called “Ask a Monk” in which a Brother Sebastian (the collective name for a group of cloistered Benedictine monks who want to remain anonymous to follow their Rule’s counsel on humility) answers peoples’ questions in a live chat mode. According to the press release from Harold Fickett, the editor-in-chief of Catholic Exchange:

“Ask A Monk” works in two ways—via live chat and email. When Brother Sebastian is not online, you can ALWAYS send him an email.  He will answer your emails just as soon as possible. You just go to the same place on the Catholic Exchange homepage, click on the “Ask A Monk” button, and fill out the form with your email message.

Monday through Friday, you can chat live with Brother Sebastian from 6:00 – 6:30 PM Easter Time. On the weekends, the hours will be extended. Live chat will be available on Saturday and Sunday from 3:00 – 5:00 PM Eastern Time.

It looks like a great opportunity and a great use of the web.
