“It is not you who have chosen me … it is me who has chosen you. (Jn 14) Go and sell whatever you have, give it to the poor, then come and follow me. (Mc 10)


La communauté de BaumgartenWe are sixteen nuns of three different nationalities to have heard one day this call from the Lord : “Come and follow me”. Together in this community gathered around an abbess (or Mother superior), everyone here has found a way of living which suits our desire to belong wholly to God. Some have come fifty years ago or even more, others more recently. It’s the same love of Christ which unites us, whatever our origin, our age or our culture.
