Monastic Prayer

The adhesive of a vibrant Benedictine community is its prayer life. Living Christian community as a professed Benedictine requires each monastic to seek Christ-like transformation of heart, mind and soul. This quest is nurtured through prayer that opens us to intimacy with God. Communal daily celebration of the Liturgy of the Hours, lectio divina, devotional prayer and Eucharistic liturgy are integral to the work of contemplative transformation to which Benedictines aspire.

Benedict is clear that prayer forms the heart of each member and the collective heart of the total community. He devotes more than a dozen chapters of his Rule to the work of God, his name for the daily common prayer of the community (RB 8-20). – Wisdom From the Tradition.

Come Pray with Us In the Rule of St. Benedict, Monastics are to become one in spirit, to see the Christ in the other, to share the best of our life with the one who comes, to make our relationships holy.
