In a spirit of compunction and intense desire, they devote themselves frequently to prayer. While dwelling on earth, their minds are occupied with heavenly things, desiring eternal life with spiritual longing. So the Constitutions speak of our life in the enclosure of the monastery. Somehow we are meant to bilocate, praying always, noticing the Lord's presence even now but longing for the fullness and the more that is the Kingdom.
