Best of Tucson 95

Best Religious Refuge From The Urban War Zone

STAFF PICK: Step out of Speedway rush hour traffic and into the serene silence at the Benedictine Sanctuary, where time passes imperceptibly and people still pray. Perpetual adoration like you wouldn't believe, light a votive candle for a late afternoon respite of quiet reflection. No Vatican II folk-mass backslapping here, the Benedictine sisters live in an island of serious medieval 'tude (as in solitude) amidst the urban existential crunch. This sanctuary, at 800 N. Country Club Road, is a place where people go to ask for miracles, spiritually, the ultimate "base" in life's game of Hide and Seek.
