Guide, Linda Neil, CSJ. This virtual retreat will focus on important Lenten themes with reflections that engage us in creation, the cosmos and the Paschal Mystery. Divine Mystery pulsates throughout the universe. Jesus was immersed in this mystery. He drew so much of his inspiration and so many of his teachings from the wisdom and wonder of Creation. His incarnation is the apex of creation. Jesus’ life, death and resurrection celebrate the great gift of the cosmos and help us to live into this amazing gift. The retreat includes reflections on the scriptures in light of the Universe Story and the Paschal Mystery. Participants will reflect on Jesus’ witness to the awesomeness of our Earth using images from Hubble, the artwork of Marion Honors, CSJ, the photography of Clare Pelkey, CSJ and friends, poetry and meditation.
