Chapel Windows XV: Obedience

Obedience

The Benedictine charism is to seek God as members of a cenobitic community and to respond through prayer and ministry. This charism is reflected in symbol in the beautiful stained glass windows in our chapel.

OBEDIENCE

Obedience is symbolized by a cross, a cup, and a yoke.

Through attentive listening to the voice of the Spirit, the Benedictine woman seeks to become like Christ, always faithful to the One who invites her. "Come to Me ... I will refresh you ... My yoke is sweet ... My commands are not burdensome."

Let nothing be preferred to the Work of God – Rule of Benedict 43:3
