The spirit of the Benedictine Sisters of Christu Jyothi (Benedictine Sisters of Christ the Light) is a sharing in the spirit of Jesus Christ, who was intimately united with the Father. Through our intimate union with Him in prayer, life in community, and apostolic services we participate in the light and life-giving mission of Christ.
In prayer we encounter God. Prayer is the foundation of our lives. Prayer nourishes, unifies and challenges every aspect of our lives. God is our treasure and prayer is the means for closer relationship with God and others.
Community prayer, sharing of meals, recreation and celebrations are important means to shape our communities. Christ has brought us together as a loving, caring and sharing family to radiate His light.
