Made in France at the Monastery
"Cistercian" comes from the word "Cîteaux", in Latin Cistercium and which means the place of the cistels; Cîteaux in France is at the origin of this reform movement in 1098.
Monks and nuns live apart from worldly affairs, and in male or female communities; the two male and female branches form a single order. The Order is present on five continents: each community observes the same lifestyle while adapting them according to the places.
At the Monastery of La Joie Notre-Dame, Sister Angelina would be a Trappistine sister like the others if her journey before the monastery had not been so unusual: Sister Angelina "made the journey", in Latin America and North Africa, traveled through France, for 18 months with a friend and two donkeys, earning a living by showing a puppet show ... She was a student at the School of Fine Arts in Valencienne, executed a host of small trades: waitress of coffee, pizza seller… She experienced all kinds of excess, a very free existence in which she put herself in danger, before radically changing her life when she arrived at Campénéac Abbey, south of Rennes, at the gates of the forest of Brocéliande, with her two donkeys and the friend with whom she toured France on foot.
