Great importance is to be given to what the Rule commands: that whoever would eat should work, as the Apostle St. Paul did. If, however, some should wish to accept a special task, to be finished in a given time, they may do so.
- Our work is a service
- We do not work for our own personal interests, but to allow ourselves to be transformed into the likeness of Christ who came to serve.
- Work is therefore, a contemplative act.
- We unite ourselves in our work, with that Divine Will of the Father, who sent into this world His own Son to show us the dignity of work.
- The nuns will submit themselves willingly to the common law of work in the duties within the common life of the Monastery.
- They will place at the service of their Sisters, their energies and talents, contributing to the life of the community, and willingly engaging in the activities of community life, building up the Teresian Carmel, where they have been called to live.
- Their labours become their way of associating with the redemptive work of Christ for the salvation of souls.
