What in your life is precious? For us as a monastic community it is occasions when we can be alone and undisturbed before God. Because that is so precious to us we create boundaries around our prayer time with silence and solitude, laying aside our work and even our accessibility to others and the world, so that we can focus on the one joy of our heart and be truly present to God in Christ. What in your life needs to be protected?
