Deeper into Divine Mystery

Relationships with the Divine within ourselves, relationships with the Divine in our world, and relationships with the Divine embodied in others – that was the theme of the SC Congregational Retreat held June 22-26, 2017 and presented by S. Janet Mock, CSJ. Sisters and Associates entered into Mystery through poetry, prose, storytelling and use of a children’s book with space for quiet, contemplative dialogue and optional time for afternoon listening sessions. Retreatants visited poverty of spirit affirming, “I am nothing without God”; used Mary’s Annunciation as an example of how God waits for us.; and considered courage needed for today as we find ourselves ‘standing in the gap’ and the importance of relationships, both new and old, to ‘be that difference’ in the world. Participative liturgies each day brought the theme into greater focus.
