On Tuesday, 3 November—the night of the US elections—the brothers will hold a livestreamed vigil before the blessed sacrament. Beginning at 7:00 pm EST and concluding when the final polls close at 1:00 am EST, the brothers will pray in silence, punctuated by hourly psalms and litanies, praying for voters and government officials, for stability and transparency, for peace and justice, and for our shared political life. It will be a long night for the country; in the midst of this earthly uncertainty, we invite you to join us in watchful prayer, abiding together in the steadfastness of God.

God’s invitation remains the same: Just rest. It’s so simple and so transformative. The radical practice of rest can help us to recognize in ourselves the very patterns of effort that consume our energy and our lives. It can help us to let go of these useless strategies and this relentless striving. Rest takes us to the lip of the well, and helps us to fall into God’s generous grace.

At this time when our lives are upended, consider reclaiming “rest” as an essential practice. Br. Nicholas Bartoli invites us to fall into God’s generous grace >
