The emphasis on charity found in the Rule of St. Augustine is echoed in our Constitutions: It is in the Spirit that we receive the Word from God the Father with one faith, contemplate him with one heart, and praise him with one voice. In him we are made one body, share in the one bread, and finally hold all things in common.

Our main work is chanting the Liturgy of the Hours throughout the day. This is a powerful way to intercede for the needs of the Church and of the whole world.

But all the other tasks which fill our day, however humble, go out to help save souls if we “offer it up” to Jesus.

Recreation, too, can provide an opportunity of practicing charity, as knitting and other handiwork become gifts for those in need.
