Liturgy and prayer requests
The Monastery chapel is open for all who wish to pray or spend some time in silence.
The liturgy is a privileged space to enter into and meditate on the mystery of salvation.
The Office reminds us that time is a gift given to us by God, and it sanctifies the different moments of the day: morning, midday, evening and night.
When we end our daily cycle of prayer, someone else in another part of the world picks it up.
In this way, the Church of Christ continually lifts her voice in intercession and praise.
The Dominican Saint Catherine of Siena writes that praising God’s mercy expands the heart (Dialogue 31).
Every day we sing at Vespers the words of the Magnificat:
- My soul glorifies the Lord,
- my spirit rejoices in God, my Saviour.
- He looks on his servant in her lowliness;
- henceforth all ages will call me blessed.
- The Almighty works marvels for me.
- Holy his name!
- His mercy is from age to age,
- on those who fear him.
- (Luke 1:46-50)
