Everyone is invited to take this inner journey. It is best experienced
through silence and solitude. In the monastery, our observance of external
silence allows an inner silence to reveal itself, and in interior silence
and inner stillness we hear and encounter Jesus. Saint Augustine assures
us: "God is closer to us than we are to ourselves."
This contemplative journey requires the lifelong task of growing in self-knowledge.
This, in turn, leads to ever deepening spiritual conversion. In allowing
Jesus to transform our hearts in his love, we will come to recognise the
loving plan of God in the work set before us.
It is Christ who will accomplish in us all that we hope and desire.
