Wondering what your vocation in life is? Want a deeper glimpse into our daily monastic life? Wanting to discern if there might be a connection between the inklings of your heart and our monastic life? We hope this blog helps you in your vocational discernment.
The grace of the season of Advent is a reawakening of our hope in the salvation that has already come, that comes now, and will come in the fullness of the "Day of the Lord." Nevertheless, it is true that insistence on this grace somewhat hides the primordial role of God. Would we do anything but wait if God were not the Master of the Game? ..... God, then, calls us to him to reestablish our confidence now and always, that we may not be discouraged by delays, tribulations, and troubles of every kind, for he is present in our world.
