“Let them prefer nothing whatever to Christ, and may Christ bring us all together to everlasting life.”
In Loving Memory
Our Sisters who have gone before us faithfully sought God in their work and prayer. They lived the Benedictine way of life as the Rule invited them. “If we wish to dwell in God’s tent, we will never arrive unless we run there by doing good deeds” (RB, Prologue).
They gifted us with their wisdom. Their memories are ever present, reminding each of us to love above all, live simply and purposefully, act justly, and respect all of God’s creation.
We rejoice with them as they walk into the arms of the Holy One and we remember St. Benedict’s words in the prologue:
What is more delightful than this voice of the Holy One calling to us? See how God’s love shows us the way of life. Clothed then with faith and the performance of good works, let us set out on this way, with the gospel for our guide, that we may deserve to see the Holy One.
