Franciscan Sister Jacqueline and Sister Julie Ann at Valley of Our Lady Cistercian MonasteryThe Cistercian Nuns have a prayerful home at Valley of Our Lady Monastery, the only Catholic convent of its kind in the U.S. We visited them recently. The Cistercian Community lives in the country on farmland. The main house is at the foot of a picturesque bluff. Fitting for a silent retreat, we will join the Nuns in becoming singularly focused on prayer in this environment, and  have the opportunity to listen to God without a lot of distraction. St. Francis would feel at home among the beauty of this landscape. In fact, a statue of this saint of ecology is not far from the statue of Mary pictured above.
