It is You whom I invoke, O Lord.

In the morning You hear me;

watching and waiting.

It is through schedule that a monastic community must try to find a balance between communal life and solitude, between manual labor and leisure, between liturgical and private prayer, between the day’s business and the night’s rest. Our schedule is a result of the years of experience and is grounded in the long lasting monastic tradition.
