Sisters have a great love for meditation, during which time they set their minds on God and unite themselves to the person of Jesus Christ in His mysteries, His virtues and His teachings. In this way, they hope to receive from the Lord the internal freedom and the spiritual discernment which their ministry requires and the graces they need to work effectively for building up the kingdom of God (Can 663; Rom 13:14). At least half an hour each day is devoted to meditation (cf. Matt 4:4; Eph 3:14-19; Luke b2:19,51; Luke 10:38; Col 3:1-3; Vat 11 Evangelica Testificatio No. 34).
