The Visitation Monastery in Pinerolo Italy has been featured in a 51 minute video that rivals the artistic beauty, simplicity, silence and spirituality of other outstanding monastic programs.
Even if you do not understand Italian, you will enjoy the gorgeous vistas outdoors and the profound spirituality within this traditional Visitation Monastery.
Recall that we featured this Monastery in February 2013 when we posted the story about Amna Josephine, their nine year old “saint” originally from Africa.http://visitationspirit.org/2013/02/ahmna-josephinethe-visitation-orders-st-bakhita/

This insightful article by Senior Salesian Scholar Father Alexander T. Pocetto, OSFS, PH.d, entitled Love and Belief, St Francis de Sales and the New Evangelization, will stir your intellectual and devotional faculties.
He suggests “To appreciate fully this relationship of belief or faith to love, we should ask ourselves not so much “What do you believe or believe in?” but rather, “What do you set your heart on?”, “What or Whom do you love?”or more colloquially, “What makes you tick?” We do not set our hearts on“persons, causes, institutions or ‘gods’ because “we ought to.” We invest or devote ourselves because the other to which we commit has, for us, intrinsic excellence or worth and because it promises to confer value on us.”
