Mindfulness of God

During his Sunday chapter talk, the abbot reminded us that as monks we are called to cultivate constant mindfulness of God. And so we must set aside ample time for lectio divina and prayer. Cultivating such mindfulness requires attentiveness and availability. Indeed our whole day, all that we do, all that we think and speak must make our hearts, our minds totally available for God. God longs to give Himself to us; our work is availability.
