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)

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.

The monastery

The monastery of San Luca has a history of over six hundred years, a history of uninterrupted female Benedictine monastic presence in the city of Fabriano.


The ora et labora dictates Benedictine monastic day. Community liturgical prayer and personal prayer with the practice of lectio divina are central moments in our lives. Work and hospitality are equally essential aspects for human growth and faith within the monastic life.
