The life of a brother of St John rests on four pillars. The first of these is contemplation.

“In the beginning was the Word”.

By these first words of his gospel, St John reminds us, not only of the essential, but also the principle of our lives.*** It has meaning only connected to the source, as the father to the son. We are called to live this mystery. To try and achieve this, we precisely preserve times of prayer beforehand re the blessed sacrament. 1 am in the morning, upon waking and 1 pm at the end of the morning, before lunch. Moreover, we meet three times a day as a community to celebrate together the praises of the Lord.
