For me, the three aspects of living, working and praying together really capture what we're about in religious life. The life is set up so that these three aspects, prayer, community and ministry mutually support one another. We're all about mission - yes, absolutely, and all about prayer and community at the same time. I think this is something that I've learned by doing, or rather learned by living. It is such a blessing to share this life with others who can share the joys and challenges.
I'm looking forward to continuing conversations as the younger folks connect on how we can mutually support one another and also how we can provide a community that is lifegiving and supportive of ministry. God bless us in this exciting movement.
