Contemplative Life

The monastic life has always been an honored path for men and women to "deny themselves, take up their cross" and follow the Lord by devoting their lives to Him and serving him as monks or nuns. Taking vows of personal poverty, chastity, obedience and stability, they seek spiritual perfection by leading lives of prayer pleasing to God. In their imperfect way, they strive to serve him with a three-fold service of prayer, work and study.
