Off to Work I Go

I am very blessed to be able to work
part-time for The Visitation Monastery.

The Visitation order is a cloister order committed to prayer
and is characterized by a spirit of humility and gentleness. 
These daughters of the Gospel, dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, live a life "hidden with Christ in God."


The Visitation Monastery was built in 1832, very much inspired by the french who founded the order

This is a peek of the roof line, of one of the buildings now serving as a religious gift shop on the property.  The terra cotta Griffin watches over the property.

There is a peace you feel when you enter through the gates on
the property and you pray you can take it with you when you depart.
"Now we step beyond the gates to face a world of care,
to be a gentle presence in the midst of a violent world."

"This is what the Lord asks of you only this, to act justly, to love
tenderly and to walk humbly with your God."  -micah 6:8

Blessings come your way, Kathy

  1. How lovely! And peaceful. I think I'd like to visit there one day.
    There is a place near Denver which supplies just such a feeling, the Mother Cabrini Shrine. people come from all over the world to visit her gravesite, taste the waters, and climb the summit to the monument. It is very beautiful there.
    Peace
