The Cistercian Way 2019
The Reverend Susan Blagden gave a talk on The Cistercian Way on 20th August, the Feast Day of St. Bernard of Clairvaux, who said:-
“There are those who seek knowledge for the sake of knowledge; that is Curiosity.
There are those who seek knowledge to be known by others; that is Vanity.
There are those who seek knowledge in order to serve; that is Love.”
Susan, a theological educator, explained the worship and spirituality of the Cistercians, and their engagement with the community. This monastic way of life shaped our Christian heritage, and our buildings. The Cisterican Day started at 1.30am, when they got up and started the Nocturnes office at 2am. They would finish with Compline at 8pm, saying the same psalms every night to put the world to bed, before it was their bedtime at 8.15pm. That’s just over 5 hours to rest and sleep!

On Good Friday morning, we gathered at St. Mary’s Church, in Caerhun, to worship together. The light was shining through the East window, and wooden crosses had been placed on the altar.
After the Service at 10am, we carried a cross through the beautiful Conwy valley and Conwy town to St. Mary’s Church, in Conwy, for the afternoon Service at 3pm. The cross was carried down the aisle.
On Easter Day, the Resurrection Light was shining through the windows of all our Churches, as we proclaimed ‘Christ is Risen, He is Risen indeed – Alleluia!’.
