Life in Lilongwe

A while ago I did a posting on the Poor Clares of Lerma in Spain, where a phenomenal renewal of religious life is taking place. Today's posting is about another Poor Clare community, this time in Lilongwe, Malawi.
I subscribe to "Pastoral Renewal Exchange" where subscibers submit articles, poems etc that they think will be of interest, and PRE duplicates them, sending them out to all other subscribers. In the latest edition was a piece by Fr Padraig O Maillie about this convent, where he attended Vespers (Evening Prayer). The video shows the sisters at prayer including, I think the Magnificat, with a commentary by Fr Padraig. I love the voices, the gentle dance, expressive hands and surrounding peace. Enjoy.
