The web site of the Charterhouse of the Transfiguration consists of a selection of published texts or parts of texts written by Carthusians for Carthusians: sermons, novice conferences, pastoral letters from Reverend Fathers and priors, booklets, and the like. They explain the Carthusian need for silence and solitude: that is "to let the Lord utter within us a word which is equal to Himself," and speak of the ideal and of everyday challenges of Carthusian life in the desert. The site contains also numerous pictures of the monastery and its environment. It is hoped that all the elements brought together present a comprehensive picture of Carthusian life at the Charterhouse of the Transfiguration, in Vermont, USA.
