"At St. Meinrad we regard as our primary task the direct worship of God in his heavenly sanctuary, through which we draw down the heavenly dew to refresh the missionary's wide field of work, not merely in our district or diocese, but throughout all the land, as far as the strength and fervor of love is able to enrich. We believe that the liturgy is the first and most blessed duty of Benedictine missionaries, and to this end we desire to build, at St. Meinrad, a place of prayer."
-- Martin Marty, O.S.B., 1868
First Abbot of Saint Meinrad
