~ St. John Paul II
Our Lenten liturgical prayer is marked by a certain simplicity. The Chapel, while retaining the beauty appropriate to the worship of God, is stripped of those things that speak to us too strongly of what is yet to come. Lent is a season of entering the desert with Christ so as to come to the glories of the resurrection with Christ. Over the convent grounds comes a deepened silence. We strive to imitate in this holy season the silence of our Eucharistic Spouse. We take His silence in the Host as our model in working to foster an atmosphere conducive to constant adoration and prayer.
