The icy sidewalks are gone, spring is here, and Jesus Christ is risen! ALLELULIA!! Sounds like the perfect time to dust off your rosary ring and take up the ROSARY ON THE GO again! If you enjoy walking or jogging by yourself or with others why not turn it into a time of prayer so that you can exercise your body and your soul at the same time?! If you are new to the Rosary on the Go, Blessed Sacrament will provide rosary rings for each participant and beginning May 2, a weekly prayer intention based on Pope Francis’s monthly prayer intention. Please contact Lyn at firstname.lastname@example.org to request your rosary ring(s) and list of weekly intentions. In Mark 16:15 Jesus said, “GO into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature…” On your mark, get set, GO!!!!
Pope Francis’s Prayer Intention for May: The World of Finance
May 2: “That those in charge of finance will work with governments to regulate the financial sphere and protect citizens from its dangers.”
Art Reflections provides an opportunity to see and discuss the visual arts, to recognize the sacred in the secular. We begin with Visio Divina followed by some casual, some prepared discussions of Art in our lives. Meets the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 6:00-7:30pm in the Lounge.
The imagination works through suggestion, not description. Description is always direct and frequently closes off what it names. Suggestion respects the mystery and richness of a thing. All it offers are clues to its nature. Suggestion keeps the mystery open and extends us the courtesy of inviting us to see the thing for ourselves. It offers us the hospitality and freedom to trust the integrity of our own encounter with a thing. This is how a work of art can allow itself to be seen in so many different and often conflicting ways. It does not foreclose on the adventure of revelation. —John O’Donohue
Gail Fitzpatrick-Hopler offers a wonderful invitation into visio divina (or sacred seeing). I invite you to try this image for a meditation experience, as a window into your own soul and the Divine.
