Liturgy of the Hours

“Nothing is to be preferred to the Opus Dei, the Work of God” (Rule of Benedict Ch. 43). For Benedictine monastics this is the Liturgy of the Hours, a prayer form that is central to the life of the community and prayed three times a day. Based on the psalms, it is a means for God to be praised, a vehicle for the needs of all people in every part of the world to be remembered, and an opportunity for members to be shaped and changed.

Why we read from the Rule of Benedict

The Rule of Benedict is a spiritual guide, rare by virtue of its ancient origins, valued for its continuing meaningfulness in every century since. It is wisdom literature. It stresses the need and nature of real community. It brings the rhythm and ointment of prayer. The Rule brings a life based on the equality and reverence that a world in search of peace requires. — The Rule of Benedict: A Spirituality for the 21st Century by Joan Chittister, OSB

Welcoming the Stranger

What does it mean to welcome the stranger and, in doing so, to open ourselves to the presence of God? Does this hospitality include a welcome to people of differing faiths and practices and how might it be expressed? How can one’s own faith be enriched and strengthened through interfaith dialogue and cooperation? And how does a lifestyle and ministry of hospitality affect our neighborhoods, the Erie region and our future?

Easter: The Whole Truth

Easter: The Whole Truth

We know the whole truth now: death is not the end, and life as we know it is only the beginning of Life. There is no suffering from which we cannot rise if we live a life centered in Jesus. It is the empty tomb on Easter Sunday morning that says to us, “You go and tell the others. Now!”
