Short piece from the Vancouver, BC media site North Island Midweek, about Charles Brandt, a Catholic “hermit-priest.” Fr. Brandt is an 88-year old book conservator and photographer who lives in a hermitage off the Oyster River in a Vancouver wilderness. He was originally a Trappist.
Writer Stephen Hume, who features Brandt in a chapter of a book as “A Hermit of the Rivers,” writes of him:
“Brandt represents an ancient tradition of wise men and women withdrawing from the world, the better to reflect upon how best to serve God.”
“Adirondack Attic,” a feature of public radio station NCPR (Canton, New York), relates local history of New York State’s “North Country.” One recent segment describes Adirondack hermit Noah John Rondeau and presents audio from a 1959 radio interview with the “Hermit of Cold River.”
