Brother Dennis Gibbs corresponds with inmates at the Community of Divine Love, an Episcopal monastery in San Gabriel on Dec. 3, 2020.

Every day, Brother Dennis Gibbs sits by a window in the living room of his monastery in the San Gabriel Valley and pens a letter or two to people behind bars.

His “friends on the inside,” as the gray-haired monk calls them, have kept up a growing correspondence with Gibbs for more than nine months, sharing an intimate view into life in jails and state prisons during the pandemic.
