Work is our third theme of monastic practices I want to share with you during this Year of Consecrated Life.
How do you make Work a time of recollection and service? How do you hope to make your work more holy?
The next theme will be on Customs and their value in daily life.
The images and themes are taken from Monastic Practices written in 1986 by Cistercian monk, Father Charles Cummings and illustrated by Cistercian Nun, Sister M. Bernarda Seferovich. We love the illustrations! Note: We do not necessarily agree with all the opinions expressed in this book but we have pulled from it what we have found beneficial. We hope you find it helpful too!
