Solemn Silence

Be still before the Lord, and wait patiently for him (Ps. 37:7).

Silence, which is necessary for tranquility and recollection in the monastery, fosters lectio divina, prayer and spiritual activity, which are required by the contemplative character of our life (Constitutions 85). During this afternoon hour of silence, the Sisters may pray, rest, take walks, read or engage in some other activity in which they remain recollected in and with the Lord.
