Hospitality isvery important topilgrims, spiritualseekers, and thoselooking for peaceto be our guests.
Benedictines live in community and so have many occasions torecognize Christ in one another andto serve each other with mutual respect and love. Saint Benedict urgesus “to be the first to show respectto the other.” By pursuing what wejudge better for others rather thanfor ourselves, we learn selflessnessand humility. We come to community with varied backgrounds, butwe all have the same desire: to seekGod and to live mindful of how theordinary reveals the Divine.
We Benedictines believe it’s possible to live in awareness of the presence of God in everything we do inour daily routine. Attuned to God’spresence in the ordinary events ofour lives, they become extraordinary. Even something as simple asmaking the bed in the morning,washing dishes, or taking out thetrash can be a moment of encounter.God is there. We only need to beawake and aware, mindful of God,
