OUR LIFE : THE HERMITAGE
QUICK PRESENTATIONS
THE HERMITAGE

“As we turn our attention to the hermitage–that sacred sanctualry for dwelling with God in solitude–the whole summons of grace is to lose ourselves  in Him: to be transformed into Jesus. How very important it is then that the hermitage not be considered a ‘homey’ place, a resting place, but a place of fundamental and intense orientation, causing us to be at home only in God. It is not our home but His which we seek to live in, in this tabernacle of Spirit…in the desert. (Const. p. 19.)

“So we fix our eyes on what is unseen. 
For what is seen is temporary, 
but what is unseen is eternal”
 (2 Cor. 4:18)

Each member occupies a simple hermitage. In this solitary atmosphere she is called to seek freedom from everything which could diminish her love for God
