Spiritual reading is essential for a life of prayer.
Xxx reading / right
In the cell, we remain alone with Jesus and here we commune with Him, dwelling within us, as we read and work and pray and rest.
We have a good library, because spiritual reading is as necessary for the soul as food is for the body.
It keeps us vigilant and on the watch because we are tutored every day thro’ good reading and according to our needs.
It helps us to examine our lives so that they may truly be for God. It also refreshes our spirit and spurs us on to reach the heights of virtue.

“God is so good,
Oh so good to us.
Taste, oh taste and see
The goodness of the Lord,
With the best of wheat,
He feeds us all.
