Contemplative Consciousness

At the heart
of the vocation of being Brother
is the invitation
to contemplative consciousness
where Brothers enter into
the mystery we call God.
The daily practice
of contemplative prayer
lays the foundation
for a contemplative stance towards life,
and an ever-deepening awareness
of the inter-connectedness
of the whole of creation.
Brotherhood and contemplation 
go hand in hand
and, as the Brother grows in
an ever-deepening desire
for a soul connection
and a global consciounsness,
he finds his life 
transformed through
his search for the pearl
of great price.
