Our Work

Compassion and mercy are enfleshed in Christ Jesus. It is he alone who really truly understands - understands each of us, our context, (our realidad as they say in Spanish) our story, our stories. And we are invited to have this same compassionate mind in us, which was also in Christ Jesus, he who emptied himself out of love. An essential aspect of our interior work here  in the monastery is growing in our understanding of one another, open to learn and hear the stories that have shaped our hearts and minds and way of being. Hopefully we begin to learn compassion.
