Prayer

Monastic life is saturated in prayer. We pray for people who are close to us, for people who have entrusted us with their prayer requests, for ourselves, for the church, for the world. We each pray on our own in a private place, and together as a community. We come together five times a day to sing the Psalms; these ancient songs of praise, lament, supplication and thanks; bringing them to God with open hearts. In silent prayer and in lectio divina (divine reading) we open ourselves to God and create space in our hearts for the Word and the Spirit of God. In the Eucharist we say thanks and celebrate together with the church God's own willingness to serve and love.
