The benefits of religious life
Religious Life: What I most like about religious life--the benefits of religious life, for me--is that it is a lifestyle which creates an environment that is rich in spiritual nourishment. Every day we gather as a community to pray Morning and Evening Praise. In the convent where I live, faith-sharing is part of Evening Praise, that is, we share briefly how the Scriptures touched us and how God is calling us to conversion through that Word. The celebration of the Eucharist is central to our lives. So every day we participate in the day's liturgy, from which we are sent forth to be "bread" blessed and broken for others.
