Missionary Benedictine Sisters of Tutzing





SPIRITUALITY


Seeking God 


· Sollicitudo sit si revera Deum quaerit. R.B. 58,7 
· Christo omnino nihil praeponant.R.B. 72,11
· Ut in omnibus glorificetur Deus.! R.B. 57,9 


 Sisters pronounce the monastic vows of "obedience, stability, and conversion of life (Conversatio Morum)." This means, making vows to live in accordance with the Benedictine Rule, to seek God in community to remain in the monastery, and to follow the teaching and example of our Lord Jesus Christ in all things. Thus, it is written in the rule; 'prefer nothing to the love of Christ' (RB 72,11) 'so that in all things God may be glorified' (1Pet 4:11), 


(RB 57,9). Sisters commit themselves to our Congregation, in order to be more deeply united with the life and mission of the Church.

The men's community was started in Reichenbach, but in 1887 because of several problems  it moved to St. Ottilien Abbey in Upper Bavaria. Women religious have formed part of the Missionary Benedictine enterprise from 1885. Based  first in St. Ottilien the sisters moved 1904 to Tutzing, developed independently and today form the Congregation of the Missionary Benedictine Sisters of Tutzing.

In their new Motherhouse in Tutzing dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the sisters continued their life of prayer and work, trusting in their divine Lord. 
During the following decades, sisters were sent from this Motherhouse into the whole world.


Today, the Missionary Benedictine Sisters of Tutzing have become an international congregation living according to the Rule and spirit of Saint Benedict and the missionary ideal of Fr. Andreas Amrhein. 


In four continents, 16 Countries, 12 Priories, 128 Stations, around 1300 sisters are proclaiming the Gospel by "praying and working" coordinated by the Generalate in Rome.
