Graces in Every Age

 

We are invited, called, to a fullness of life and grace at every age.  Today will be an opportunity to reflect on that personal call to us at this time of life.  Perhaps there are no retirement plans in the call of God, but lots of reasons for celebrations!

The Art of Seeing

 

How do we see our life and the world?  What prompts us to look?  What inspires the way we see and interpret reality?  We will think about this and so much more.

Saints, Not Superheroes

 

The Feast of All Saints asks us to look beyond the long list of canonized saints and to hunt for holiness among our own, “a great multitude, which no one could count, from every nation, race, people, and tongue” (Rev 7:9). We recognize that we the Church, for all our flaws and sins, are nonetheless a rich harvest for God.  Can I believe that I am meant to be part of that rich harvest?  Do I want to try to be the unique “saint” Christ hopes I will be?

Joy: A Perspective on My Life

 

Pope Francis has challenged us to find joy in our lives.  We will use his writings and the Gospels themselves to show how to take this perspective, even in the midst of suffering and loss.

Pondering with Mary: “How Can this Be?”

 

This woman who in faith said: “Be it done as you say” is also the woman who waited pondered, and learned the unfolding revelation of this incomprehensible mystery that was her son. This season we wait and ponder with Mary “how this can be” that the Incarnate Mystery is made visible in our lives?

Ash Wednesday - Homecoming

 

Lent is a new beginning, a pilgrimage, a journey, looking at how we are living out our baptismal promises, how we are” putting on the mind and heart of Christ.”  It is a journey home to our truest and best self leading us to Easter joy.

Gratitude & Forgiveness

 

Gratitude and forgiveness are irrevocably tied to each other.  A forgiving person is a grateful person and vice-versa.  We will look at the common bond between these two in hopes of increasing both virtues.

Lord, teach us to Pray!

 

Perhaps most people pray, and many of us learned how to pray when we were young.  We probably know many devotional prayers by heart.  However, you might have wondered how to pray differently and effectively.  You might have a desire to go a little further in prayer life.

A day of prayer might be a good opportunity for you to explore a new way of praying with scriptures, by reading and listening to words spoken directly from God.  It is also an opportunity for you to spend time resting and being nourished by God, while giving your body and your mind a well-deserved break from the busy routine of everyday life.
