A vibrant communal life is a support to growth in holiness and a fruit of the Holy Spirit’s action. In seeking one another’s good, supporting one another through prayer and service in sisterly affection, we encounter God through one another’s selfless love and are drawn together in Him. With the help of the Holy Spirit to live the great commandments – love of God and neighbor – we are enabled build up the Body of Christ, the Church.
Growth in Community
Frail and human as we are, living in common challenges our natural tendencies towards self-interest and provides concrete calls to live the Gospel. Thus community life prompts conversion of mind and heart as each press on towards perfect charity. In addition, the gifts and talents of each Sister consistently surprise and edify the others! Seeing our fellow Sisters’ personal growth is an encouragement to each member of the community in faithfully living our call. Thus life together becomes a small taste of the joy of the heavenly Jerusalem where we will all share in the fullness of God’s own life.
