An order of contemplatives
who dedicate their whole existence to God alone. Their vocation develops in two forms:
- The fathers are priests, that is to say, they have received the priesthood. Most of the time they live in the silence of their little house called "cell".
- The brothers, in addition to their contemplative life, carry out the work necessary for the life of the monastery.
These are the two very complementary ways of life of the Charterhouse, under the sign of the common search for God, in a very lonely environment.
The solitude of the Carthusian is neither a resignation nor an abandonment, but the choice of a space of freedom, where the self-giving is fully expressed in favor of humanity, and where a universal prayer rises permanently .
Thus in our modern world, made of constant changes, the Order of Carthusians affirms, ceaselessly since Bruno's first steps in the mountains of Chartreuse, a universal quest, an ideal of truth and inner fullness. The quest for the whole man, the man of all time.
