Our sisters in Wrentham, MA, write about our Cistercian founders and their quest for a simpler life. They continue that quest: "We, nuns, successors to the men who stopped in a certain place and created a life of simplicity for themselves, are fortunate enough to be able to do much the same here at Mt. St. Mary’s Abbey in Wrentham, MA. Our renewable energy projects--wind, geothermal, solar--have everything to do with that life. The gifts of God are there for us to enjoy, and in using them, we honor the Creator of us all. As cloistered, Catholic women we are often in church, where we gather to sing and “bless the Lord.” And blessing the Lord is something we try to do in every part of our lives, including the ways in which we live."
