• The community

    We are a monastic community that seeks to "follow Christ on the path of the Gospel"
    according to the Rule of St. Benedict.
    The central moment of our day is formed by the Eucharistic celebration extending to the personal hearing of the Word and to community prayer.
    The atmosphere of silence fosters our communion.
    The monastic community is pleased to share these moments with its guests.

The time of Lent and Easter

 

The time of Lent and Easter is a sacramental one and a faith journey that from Ash-Wednesday leads to the gift of the Holy spirit at Pentecost, and finds its heart in the Easter triduum, goal and new beginning of Christian community walk.
This time of the liturgical year is clearly Christological: the Church proclaims the Easter events of the “Passion, Death, Resurrection, Ascension of Christ, till the gift of the Holy Spirit and renews its faith in the accomplishment of God’s design of salvation of mankind.
Lent is structured as a spiritual itinerary in which some aspects of the History of Salvation are deepened and that will reach its climax with Easter, according to the three liturgical cycles:
Year A( Baptismal); Year B( penitential) ; year C (Christological).
Furthermore it is the time of the Catechumen, that is the ones who are preparing to be baptized (to receive baptism). The Christian community rediscovers and lives with them Baptism and Repentance as true dimensions of being Christian.
Easter time is the sacramental time of the Holy Spirit and of the Church, renewed and witness of our Lord Resurrected from the Dead and reaching out towards the definite accomplishment of the history of salvation. It’s for this reason that the readings that characterize this liturgical time come from the Apocalypse and the Acts of the Apostles: we can glimpse at the end of time and go over the Church first period, paradigmatic for any Christian Community.
Finally with the celebration of Pentecost we receive again the gift of Holy Spirit. It is given for the Church, Christ body, that is walking towards the Heavenly Kingdom.
