Ora et Labora

Grandpa, what do you do all day in the Monastery?

Well, we pray…and work…and pray…and work…

Monastic life is mostly two things, Prayer and work. We gather in the church and chant the Psalms 7 times a day, and in between, do simple manual labor. The labor is really just another kind of prayer.

It’s a very gentle, peaceful life.
