Community life requires an established order of acts. In them, the sisters express their communion with God and with one another; and they diligently help one another to be faithful to their vocation. Saint Teresa desired that there would be a faithful balance in our horarium between the hours of prayer, work and rest, as well as harmony between times of solitude and community acts ~ Constitutions No. 96
