Our prayer- the heart of our life


The Eucharist and our sacramental life

As prayer is the source and foundation of our life, the Eucharist is the living fountain from which our prayer and the rest of our life springs forth. The Eucharist is our most sacred and intimate place of encountering Christ, our Spouse, and it is the life-giving source of our consecration.  It is also the summit toward which our whole life is directed.  Called to be a total self-donation to the Lord for the salvation of souls, our life finds its fullest meaning and expression in offering and being offered with Christ in the Eucharistic Sacrifice. In the Eucharist our Bridegroom gives us His heart, vulnerable and broken out of love for us.  In receiving Him into our very bodies we experience the sacred consummation of our Spousal love.

We consider the celebration of the Eucharist the most important part of our day and endeavor to bring its graces into all dimensions of our daily life. We ponder this great gift of Christ in our hearts by adoring and contemplating Him in Eucharistic adoration.  Here He  displays before us His vulnerable Heart and this empowers us to become poor, humble, and vulnerable before Him in prayer and also to give ourselves to others so that they may come to know the merciful love of God. We normally have two Holy Hours everyday. View our prayer schedule. We also have the grace to regularly receive His mercy in the Sacrament of Reconciliation in order to gain the grace to overcome our sins and become more conformed to Christ, our Bridegroom.

In Him we live and move and have our being(Acts 17:28). We find the fullest meaning of our lives in our union with Christ, the Bridegroom of the Church, and we desire His presence to penetrate and guide the interweaving of the very fabric of our lives, clothing us with the seamless garment of His life and love.  As we seek for our life to be patterned by His mysteries, we enter fully into the liturgical rhythm of each day, week, and season.  Through the Liturgy of the Hours, we endeavor to let the mystery of Christ, realized most fully in the Liturgy of the Eucharist, permeate and transform each period of the day, making it holy. By celebrating the Divine Office, we give ourselves in unceasing prayer through being united with Christ, the High Priest, and His Body the Church, in offering continuous worship and praise of God and interceding
