“Therefore, let us consider how it becometh us to behave in the sight of God and His angels, and let us so stand to sing, that our mind may be in harmony with our voice”. (RB 19)

Monastic life is marked by the listening to the Word of God in daily liturgy, because the Liturgy of the Hours, on weekdays, preserves, in time and in the rhythm of human life, that lordship of God on the cosmos and on history that the Christian faith recognizes in the death and resurrection of the Lord. The Liturgy of the Hours, as its very name says, is hinged from its origins in the astronomical and human rhythm of the day (light-darkness, morning-evening) and also expresses a universal language that puts us in communion with men and women of every religious tradition.

Common prayer hours are:

Matins                6 a.m.
Lauds                  7:30 a.m.
Holy Mass          8 a.m.
Midday prayer   12 a.m.
Vespers              6:30 p.m.

The weekday Holy Mass is celebrated on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday
Lauds             7:30 a.m.
Holy Mass     9 a.m.
Vespers          6:30 p.m.

Monastic life takes place accompanied by constant listening to and dialogue with the Word of God.
