Dedication to adoration

"Our life is one of total dedication to perpetual adoration of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Truly Present in the Most Blessed Sacrament, in a spirit of reparative thanksgiving.

"What is 'reparative thanksgiving'?

"Reparative thanksgiving can be defined as offering Our Lord our gratitude for His Love and Grace in place of those who never thank Him; it is to love Him for those who have no time for Him.

"We are a Cloistered Community of Contemplative Nuns, known as the Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration.

"(We are) taking the treasures of spirituality and love that we have been given (at our founding monastery in Alabama), and, with His grace, begin planting it anew in the desert of Arizona."

"What are the requirements of entering the Poor Clare of Perpetual Adoration at Our Lady of Solitude? You must be a single woman between the ages of 21 and 35, aave a High School education, be a Catholic in good standing, (and) have good physical and psychological health."
