29th June at Douai Abbey

Loving Father,

We give you thanks, because youcall us all, to participate in your divine plan for the world; that all people may find their joy and peace in you.

Bless us with a heart open to you, and enable us to listen to your Holy Spirit.

Enlighten our minds; that we may discern the path that we should follow.

Give us courage to live out the life you invite us to; following more closely the example of Jesus your Son, who lives and reigns for ever and ever.

Amen

A monastic vocation is heard and seen and followed. If anyone has a sense that they might be called to monastic life we are always happy to talk with Catholics, men and women, young and old, who sense that they have such a vocation.

Jesus said, “I came that they may have life and have it in abundance.” [John.10:10] and this is what a vocation from God implies; we learn new practical, professional and interpersonal skills in order that we may live to the full.

Everyone needs life, but with particular regard to those who may have a monastic vocation at Ealing Abbey, experience has shown that after one’s mid to late thirties, it is difficult to adapt to monastic life, to submit to the process by which one yields to the demands of life “under a Rule and an Abbot” (Rule of Saint Benedict 1:13).
