 The natural outlet of Lake Annecy, this river provides the heart of the alpine town a constant flow. Now a decorative canal that favors fish reserves, it was once used as transportation and a thoroughfare for agriculture, and to drive power for manufacturing aspects early on.

The open door of the monastery signifies the spiritual entryway to the heart of Christ where all are welcomed. But this welcome is poignant with expectation and even challenge; to arrive at the source of light, one must traverse through the darkness; the shadow of our sins must be 'shortened' or 'dispersed' before we can be received into the light... into the presence of God's resplendent light. Are we willing to step through the open door?

The inspirational words of Psalm 121 come to mind: "1 will lift up my eyes to the mountains; from where shall come my help? My help shall come from the Lord, who made heaven and earth." The complexities of our lives are never too much for the One who created the entire universe. Let us call upon our God in time of need.

A moment of aloneness, steeped in silence, heart and mind focused on an immediate need, yet always keeping close to the One who is near, filling the silent spaces with love of duty, of community, of God.
(Words from the Tyringham Visitation Monastery, Ma.)

Our poverty is not merely a physical one- we submit our judgement too, besides our will and material things. -Soeur Margarite Marie (Helen Goetze vows, 1950)

'May the favor of the Lord rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us..yes, establish the work of our hands.'
Psalm 90:17

This baroque facade of the former Chapel of the Visitation was constructed in 1614 and was rebuilt in 1652 as the 'Sainte Source' (Holy Spring). It is here that the Nuns buried the remains of their founders St.Francis de Sales and Jane de Chantal, where the shrines became an object of pilgrimages for the whole of Europe.. The French Revolution led to a total ransacking of the building. On the night of March26th, 1793, two nuns secretly stole away the relics to a boat with the idea to bring them to safety. As the secret was betrayed, they were solemnly brought back, but fearing for the future, the faithful hid the bones of the two saints and put substitutes in their place.

True joy cannot be hidden It resides essentially in the heart. A life spent for God cannot be without joy.

This is its sign of authenticity. God channels joy into the hearts who have Him as their center. All things are then seen and received with a glad heart.
(Words from the Tyringham Visitation Monastery,Ma.)
