It’s what you pay attention to in life that determines both your commitments and your inner happiness. Time is its indicator. One of the most important questions of life is surely, Where do I spend my time and what am I doing there? The second is, What calls me back to where I’m meant to be? 
Monastic bells can draw your attention again and again to what is really of great concern: the call of God in you to remember the suffering, to comfort the grieving, to feed the underfed. To continue the work of God’s love for all the earth. If those are the bells of life that waken our hearts, then, perhaps, we will finally become a country again, a people again, and reflect more signs of humanity than of nationalities and clans and colors.
Joan Chittister, OSB


Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
