Abide: Keeping Vigil with the Word of God (Sister Macrina Wiederkehr, OSB.)


‘Abide’ is a very rich and sacred word. It is an invitation to dwell in Christ, to be immersed in the Divine, to be absorbed in God. Spend time this weekend searching out ways to restore some of the blessings you’ve missed because of the busyness of your lives. Special emphasis will be given to the practice of living mindfully in the midst of daily life. We will explore the sacredness of both BEING and DOING. Give yourself the gift of sacred space for soul-work, for keeping vigil with the Word of God and with the Hours of the Day.
