Monks live by the work of their hands, according to the Holy Rule. Last Saturday, several of us Sisters helped with a “community assist” with the vacating and deconstruction work.
Helping hands were evident all around. Some of us dismantled lighting fixtures and sorted all kinds of little gadgets for later use. Some of us pulled nails and many of us hauled the nail free bits of wood to a waiting trailer to be taken to a storage place.
Some of us continued to clean out the numberless closets and hidden nooks and crannies. One Sister made chocolate chip cookies and distributed cool water. The spirit of camaraderie and purpose was palpable, and we did not stop until it was time to clean up for prayer – another thing we do with united hearts and purpose.
