God Alone

As monks we have come to realize more and more that God alone is enough for us; and so we have surrendered our lives and fixed our gaze upon the Lord, retreating into the cell of our heart in the inhabited solitude of the cloister and fraternal life in community. In this way, we seek to become more and more an image of Christ Jesus our Lord who seeks to encounter the Father on the heights.
