What is an Urban Monk? He is a person living a solitary life in the city, dedicated to pursuing the path towards union with God.
Hi, my name is Jesson Mata. Consider me a lover of beauty in life. I direct liturgy and music, I own a photography and consulting business, I am the founder and president of a non-profit organization, I am an avid gardener, and a devoted Catholic with a love for the Church and Her ancient forms of worship. I am an instituted acolyte and lector and have functioned as a Subdeacon in the Dominican Rite, a 13th century monastic rite that is a beautiful expression of the Church's prayer.
I seek the beautiful and the good in all things.
The Urban Monk is the fruit of my life of prayer and work. It is my hope that through this media, I might be able to help others come closer to God.
