“You follow us when we flee.

We turn our backs on you

and you run to place yourself in front of us;

you plead, but you are scorned;

no confusion, no belittlement, can tear you apart from, unceasingly,

using such means

so that with them you may attract us

to that joy which no eye saw,

no ear heard,

nor has the human heart

been able to conceive.”


Saint Bernard of Clairvaux

In the mornings

We receive classes on the Rule of our Father St. Benedict, asceticism, the Sacred Scripture, the Fathers of the Church, Theology, ...

music and many more...

 Latin, Arabic lessons as well as other languages, ... 

with the sole purpose of enriching our relationship with Christ.


We praise God with our actions, with our chant in the choir and also with instrumental music. 

We play our instruments during Mass to give thanks to God.


Our afternoons are occupied by work.

We distribute amongst ourselves the tasks in the kitchen, the laundry room, the sacristy, the sewing, accounting, ...

painting, candle decoration, the library,

the guest room service, and the garden

Where we meditate in silence the words of God in our hearts. 


At the end of the day we have half an hour of recreation with the sisters.  We get together to dialogue about different spontaneous subjects, our families, share worries and joys.  

While participating in the service of the neighbor, who is the same Jesus Christ, we set ourselves to listen and share the most beautiful and agreeable moments of the day.

End of the day

“Keep sober and alert, because your enemy the devil is on the prowl like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Stand up to him, strong in faith and in the knowledge that it is the same kind of suffering that the community of your brothers throughout the world is undergoing.”

(1P 5, 8-9)

This is the text we pray for Compline, the night prayer of the Church, with which we conclude our day, and then entrusting ourselves to the hands of the Virgin, we intone the Salve Regina
