Way of Life

Life of the Gospel

To a Capuchin Poor Clare Sister, Christ Jesus is the way to the Father. Our Holy Rule says: “The form of life of the order of the Poor Sisters that Blessed Francis established is this: to observe the Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ by living in obedience without anything of one’s own and in chastity”.

The Supreme norm of our life is following Christ exactly as proposed in the Gospels. 

By her contemplative life in the cloister, she observed the Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

By living in obedience, without anything of one’s own and in chastity, nourishing herself daily by reading and meditating on the Gospels pondering within her heart the deeds and words of the Lord which are spirit and life a Capuchin Poor Clare Nun brings her thoughts and manner of life in conformity with the Gospel.
