Relationship (1) - CopyDuring Lent Christians are encouraged to make extra time for prayer. Prayer is the foundation of an on-going relationship with Jesus. It’s a unique encounter with the God who sustains us.

We Ursulines take seriously our life of prayer. A line from our Ursuline Constitutions sheds some light, “We want Christ to be at the center of our existence as he was of Angela’s.” St. Angela was all about leading others to Christ. She told her daughters to “have Jesus Christ for our only treasure” and “to gather together at the feet of Jesus Christ.” And that’s just what Ursulines around the globe have been doing for the last 480 years!

I’ve put together a 4-minute video of some of the many places where Ursuline Sisters go for time alone with God, places where we gather together at the feet of Jesus Christ, and prayers and promises of our foundress, St. Angela Merici. My hope is that you will find inspiration for your own prayer life and Lenten practices.
