We monks hope that the first thing you will do as you log on to this site is be united with us in prayer. You pray for us. We pray for you.

Welcome to Our Lady of Calvary Abbey

A monk is a Christian who believes that all of us who are baptised into Christ are one in him.  We form his body.  The monk devotes himself to a life of prayer and reflection on the things of God and to a life of dedicated fraternal service.  Basic Christian values.  But the monk is convinced he is never alone in what he does.  In that Body of Christ, if one member does something good for Christ the whole Body benefits.  But no one of us can do everything.  Some people can do a lot of good for Christ in service in the local community and so make the whole Body more really Christ the servant.  The monk believes that if he gives himself to prayer and reflection on the things of God, then the whole Body draws closer to God our Father.  So that’s why we are here and what we are trying to do.

Our daily round, our timetable makes concrete what we are trying to do for the benefit of the human family.  We come together as a community and with our guests in the monastery chapel for prayer services seven times a day.  These prayer times are spent singing the psalms, with hymns, scripture readings, intercessions and readings from the Fathers of the Church or lives of the saints.  The content of these community prayer times varies according to the seasons of the Christian year, Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter, and whether the day is Sunday, weekday or a feast day.

The monastic community and its guests also celebrate the Eucharist daily.

The monk supplements the times of community prayer with periods spent in personal private prayer.  He also spends time reading the scriptures or books that will nourish his prayer life.

We also take seriously our duty to support ourselves and even generate income that can be shared with others needier than ourselves.  This is where the monk’s work on the farm, the land, the garden or orchard comes in.  We try to do our work in an atmosphere of prayer in the presence of God, so that is why it is all done within the confines of the monastery and without too much involvement in the world around us.  So this daily balance of community prayer, personal prayer and reading, and work gives us a timetable like the one you find on the "Daily Timetable" page.

Oh yes!  We forgot to say that there is a great monastic tradition of praying in the night, bringing the light of Christ into the darkness of the night, just as Jesus rose from the dead before dawn, and promised to return in the middle of the night.  The monk is the watchman always on the lookout.  So the timetable – well, it begins rather early for this reason.

What are the times for the u-pick?

J'aimerais tellement cueillir des pommes ! Malheureusement, vous êtes trop loin, beaucoup trop loin. Je me souviens de votre délicieux jus de pommes. 🍏🍎

alzo hehe Ivan Don Bijakšić 6S tpimesfctrled · Zli demon, sotona ili kako ga je Isus nazivao ocem lażi, żrtva je svoje sebičnosti i oholosti!!! U tome svom proklestvu u kojem prebiva żeli i dalje biti Bog i oponašati Gospodina i na način trażeći svoje sljedbenike. Vjerojatno ste u żivotu osjetili kako Bog koristi ljude u spašavanju duša i vraćajući ih na put svetosti, tako i demon koristi druge osobe koje żele upropastiti Bożji plan. Don Gabriele Amorth bio je sredstvo i Bożje orużje ljubavi u pobjedi protiv sotone i palih anđela. Mnoge duše si spasio od paklenog ognja!!! Hvala ti i zagovaraj nas s četama Bożjih anđela pred licem Bożjim, te nas brani od opakog oca lażi i njegovih demona. ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ 1. svibnja 1925. - 16. rujna 2016. 1 kommentar Suzana Monika LIVEMASS: Live-Stream - K-TV K-TV.ORG Live-Stream - K-TV Live-Stream - K-TV · Svara · Ta bort förhandsvisning · 1 m Suzana Monika Hildegard von Bingen 7t tSpaotnriomtd · Gehirn und Darm sind mit dem Vagus Nerv verbunden Das Mikrobiom besteht aus etwa 100 Milliarden Bakterien, die im menschlichen Darm leben. Dagegen gibt es nur 10 Milliarden Körperzellen, d.h. für eine Körperzelle sind 10 Mikrobakterien zuständig. Die Kost gelangt auf direktem Weg in den Darm und wird durch den Stoffwechsel in die einzelnen lebenswichtigen Bausteine zerlegt. Bei diesem Verdauungsvorgang, der bereits durch Kauen im Mund beginnt, wird im Magen durch die Salzsäure Eiweiß in seine Bausteine, die Aminosäuren, zerlegt. Anschließend verarbeiten die Darmbakterien alles, was wir essen, einschließlich Eiweiß, Kohlehydrate, Fette, Mineralien, Vitamine, Faser- und Ballaststoffe sowie die sekundären Inhaltsstoffe. Aus diesen Bausteinen wird alles bereitgestellt, was wir zum Leben brauchen: lebensnotwendige Aminosäuren zum Aufbau der Körperzellen, Hormone und Neurotransmitter für die Gehirnfunktion und Glukose für den Energiehaushalt, die über das Blut in den Körper gelangt. Gehirn und Darm stehen im ständigen Austausch von Informationen durch Nervenbotenstoffe, die im menschlichen Mikrobiom als Neurotransmitter synthetisiert und ins Gehirn transportiert werden. Dazu gehören insbesondere das Glückseligkeitshormon Oxytocin, Dopamin, das Hormon für Freude und Lust, Serotonin, das Hormon für die gute Stimmung, sowie Dopamin und Phenylalanin, das Hormon im Umgang mit Stress und Schmerzen. Ohne diese kann es zu schweren neurologischen und organischen Funktionsstörungen kommen. „Auszug aus „St. Hildegard Brief 107 - Juli 2020“ Weitere Informationen: #hildegardvonbingen #hildegardbrief #hildegarduniversum #mikrobiom #darm #darmbakterien #hormone #eiweiss # 1 kommentar Suzana Monika da mozak ti radi kako APOSTOLU JAMES ESTEBAN JAKOBU James 1:22 22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 208 kommentarer Suzana Monika AMEN PRAY: THE STORY OF PATRICK PEYTON -- RENT OR BUY NOW ONLINE YOUTUBE.COM PRAY: THE STORY OF PATRICK PEYTON -- RENT OR BUY NOW ONLINE 19:17 Du har skickat Live-Stream - K-TV K-TV.ORG Live-Stream - K-TV Live-Stream - K-TV
