The value of a religious congregation in a diocese lies not what we do, but in our prayer. We put prayer above all things because it is through our prayer life that we are able to bring Christ's life to others. Prayer is the primary reason for our vocation to the religious life. The Eucharist is the daily renewal of our covenant with the Lord, the fount from which our sevice flows and the chalice to which it returns. Prayer transforms every second of our lives into worship. As Christ spent long hours in prayerful solitude with His Father, so we too must draw aside from the daily work to spend time to be alone with our Divine Spouse.
