Eight Meditative Mondays – A Virtual Retreat –

November 2 – “Jesus in the Gospel of Luke, with its call to serve the  anawim, the Hebrew word for the little ones, the vulnerable, the poor.”

A closer look at the God to whom we pray, the Christ in whom we serve, and the Spirit who makes us church.

If it weren’t for the virus, the Abbey would be hosting “group retreats” at various points during the year — and, as in the past, Father Joseph Serano would have been one of the Norbertines. They would give a series of conferences to complement the quiet time and Abbey liturgies that our retreatants would be invited to share.

The retreat would have been entitled RETRACING OUR STEPS, and the presentations would have begun with the Abraham story, the one whom Paul calls “our father in Faith.”

Cumulatively, each of the following talks would have offered material to “re-treat” (i.e., treat again) some of the basic steppingstones on the journey of faith.

Since Covid-19 currently prevents groups from residing at the Abbey, these “Eight Meditative Mondays” are an attempt to “let the Abbey come to you.”  Each 30-35 minute presentation will be available online at 11:00 am on the four Mondays of October and the first four Mondays of November. (If 11 am does not work for you, the talks will all continue to be available throughout the day and for the full eight weeks.)
