Worship & Work
At the heart of the 1500 year Benedictine monastic tradition, "Worship and Work" succinctly describes the daily rhythm and spiritual dynamic of the monks of the Order of Saint Benedict.
A vocation to prayer, the first work of the Benedictine monks is worship. Benedictine prayer — the liturgy of the hours, daily Mass, and the ancient tradition of lectio divina — strive to serve the spiritual needs of the world and Church.
Daily Work among the Benedictine monks articulates and punctuates the spiritual life of the community, giving physical expression to the spiritual fruits of a life of worship.
