During the Church's year of celebration of Consecrated Life (2015-16), we thought the best way we could share our life was to have a film made, showing our simple consecrated life of prayer as lived in the heart of the Church for all our brothers and sisters in the world.
Hidden: A Life All For God
"These Trappistine Sisters live their lives in obscurity, hidden from the world in a life as mysterious as it is genuine. And all for only one reason – God!
They embrace a rhythm of life rooted in prayer, Lectio Divina and work in their state-of-the-art candy factory. All of it is steeped in a deep, contemplative tradition of silence and solitude.
“The desire to be with God! There would be no other reason to leave everything. I wanted to know God and He provided me with this vocation.”
- Sr Francesca Molino, OCSO
“I ask myself why did you come? It’s Him. What do you seek? It’s Him. Why do you stay? I can’t live without Him.”
- Sr Karla Goncalves, OCSO
“Only if the Sisters prefer nothing whatever to Christ will they be happy to persevere in a life that is ordinary, obscure and laborious. And I knew when I heard that, that I wanted nothing more than Christ. And that this was a place where I could pursue that.”
- Sr Sofia Millican, OCSO
Life inside their cloistered monastery is all about preferring nothing but Jesus Christ. They live in what the Sisters call a school of mutual love, trying to find Christ in every moment of every day."
