• 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.

    Idleness is the enemy of the soul. Therefore the sisters should be occupied at certain times in manual labor, and again at fixed hours in sacred reading. (RB 48,1)

  • Hospitality

    Let all guests who arrive be received like Christ, for He is going to say: «I came as a guest, and you received Me». And to all let due honor be shown, especially to the domestics of the faith and to pilgrims. (RB 53,1-2) The S.Luca nuns offer to all those who desire it, individuals or small groups, the possibility to live in the monastery days of prayer, reflection and rest. The spaces of the guesthouse are made available to the guests.

The Ordinary Time

 

The ordinary time (tempo per annum) is the time when the mystery of Christ , through the Holy Spirit, is called to penetrate, history progressively, orienting it eschatologically, until Christ will be completely in us (Col.3,11).
It is the time of discipleship and deepening of the faith that we are asked to live in our communities so that the Christological mystery celebrated at Christmas time and Easter time vivifies everyday life.
Both on Sunday and weekday the reading of the synoptic Gospel is offered in a continuous and integral way in order to make us face again the deeds and teachings of Jesus Christ and to help us follow his path day after day, until the final goal, described in the last Sunday of the liturgical year, before Advent :the celebration of Jesus Christ Lord of creation.
