“Everything I do I want to be nourishing and life-giving. Baking for my monastic sisters nourishes others, body and heart. Freshly baked bread lightens a moment with kindness and connects us as community. Monastic life and baking both show us how to slow down, be patient and learn from mistakes.
“Everywhere, balance is vital. If the ratios are right the bread will rise to perfection. If we balance our prayer, work, study and leisure, we will come out all right, too.”
Sister Ann Marie Wainright
“Only if Jesus is our first and only love will we be empowered to love, in truth and mercy, every person who crosses our path. For we will have learned from Jesus the meaning and the practice of love. We will be able to love because we have his own heart.”
