Enclosure

By withdrawal from the world, in fact and in spirit, the nuns, like prudent virgins waiting for their Lord, are freed from worldly affairs so that they may have leisure to devote themselves wholeheartedly to the kingdom of God. The hidden life should open their minds to the breadth and height and depth of the love of God who sent his Son so that the whole world might be saved through him. (LCM 36)

Our enclosure walls help to keep the world at a distance, but our prayers continue to reach out to men and women everywhere.
