Labora

 
 

ORA or PRAYER: In Benedictine life, the day is structured to allow significant time for prayer – which includes the Divine Office prayed together and individual prayer, as well as time for spiritual reading and study (Lectio Divina) which is essential to a life of prayer.

LABORA or WORK: “Praying at all times” does not exclude doing a hard day’s work. The question of how to earn a living for a community is a reality.
