Convent Life

You might be more or less ready for the convent depending on your home life. My mother ran our home very much like a convent. We had fixed times for rising, working, eating and praying. Let’s look at some aspects of daily life.

Food

Are you allowed to eat whatever you want whenever you want? In the convent, we eat what is served whether we like it or not. If some condiment is not served, instead of asking for it, we take it as an opportunity to make a sacrifice for Jesus.

Work

Do you offer all your work to Jesus to save souls? In the convent, our work is a prayer. We offer our love to Jesus while we work.

Prayer

Are you faithful to daily prayers? In the convent we attend daily Mass and have a set schedule of prayers that we follow every day.
