Lenten traditions in the monastery

Sr. Tonette blesses Sr. Eileen and her Lenten readingOur Lenten traditions may feature face masks this year, but otherwise we carry on uninterrupted in our monastic practices for the season of Lent.  We always begin this time of greater silence, increased prayer, and individual Lenten practices with an exhortation from our prioress and her blessing on our Lenten reading.  In keeping with the Rule of St. Benedict, each Sister presents the book she has selected for her Lenten reading and receives a blessing.  Here, Sister Tonette blesses Sister Eileen as she presents her book.
