About Us

The Cloisterites' eremitic rule named itself "Nesting in the Sacred Heart."  The rule calls for the hermits to nest in the Sacred Heart of Jesus as a reparation for those who ignore Him and His Gifts.
The rule is based on that of Sts. Bruno & Columba, and incorporates the spirituality of Blessed Emilie D'Oultremont and the Cloisterites.  There are also passages from the Camaldolese; St. Francis of Assisi; and St. Albert of Jerusalem.

The Spirit of the Hermits
The Life of the Hermits
