At Nazareth

As we celebrate Our Lady on this Saturday, we came upon this image of the home at Nazareth. Jesus works with Joseph and Mary is mending their clothes. Our life today at Saint Joseph's Abbey as at any Cistercian monastery is essentially the continuation and extension of this life led by Jesus, Mary, and Joseph at Nazareth - a hidden life - contemplative, ordinary, obscure and laborious.
