Sisters Praying

 


Taize Prayer Service

By Sister Ana Cloughly, OSB, Director of Contemplative Vision

 

From Winter Review 2018

Sister Mary Jane Vigil, OSB is leading the congregation using gestures to the sung Peace Prayer. Taizé prayer services usually feature an icon. We used Mary, Mother of God (to right of Sister Mary Jane.)

 

Our Taizé Prayer for Peace is held every year on December 31st, the evening before the World Day of Peace observed by the Catholic Church. We gather in Our Lady of Peace Chapel with people of all faith traditions to pray together with simple readings, sung chants and silence. Our theme this year was on care for the poor; our prayer encompassing the earth for all who suffer from poverty.

Monastic PrayerThe 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 Liturgyof 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.
