LIFE STYLE

oficio-Villamiel

We practise a monastic pace of life, nurtured by the Eucharist, the Divine Office sang in community and the worship of the Blessed Sacrament.

Brothers and Sisters consecrate themselves embracing taking the classical evangelical vows of poverty, chastity and obedience.

Chastity means the will to eradicate all selfishness in the context of interpersonal relationships, all self-seeking and the will to satisfy the ego and its inordinate affections. (rule of life, 50).

The true spirit of poverty means the choice to not provide for oneself by ones efforts but to depend completely on God in a choice voluntary dependance. (rule of life, 10)

Obedience becomes possible as a way of fulness, since it is God whom we are obeying while obeying the Church, the superior, the brother, knowing that if we live that way, obedience will not alienate us but rather it becomes an indispensable tool for purification and the death of ego. (rule of life, 51)
