May our hearts be always open.

Live by God's commandments every day. (RB 4:63)

May we be always attentive to interior promptings through Lectio Divina and inspiration. Monastic life can be defined as daily fidelity, evidence more by deeds than by words. Our vocation is to be constantly in a loving relationship with God. To the extent that our desire for God is real, it will permeate everything we do - always, every day, every hour, every minute, every second.

As Benedict says in the Prologue, Let us open our eyes to the light that comes from God, and our ears to the voice from the heavens that every day calls out this charge: "If you hear God's voice today, do not harden your hearts (Ps. 95:8)" [Prologue 9-10].

May our hearts be always open!
