Category/Categories:Christian / Catholic
Spirituality of Aging

Friday - Sunday

The lectio divina is a form of prayer intended to deepen our sense of God’s presence and action in our lives and in the world through the reading of sacred writings, especially the Scriptures. The lectio divina leads us to this deeper awareness in four steps: (1) lectio (read), (2) mediatio (meditate), (3) oratio (prayer), and (4) contemplatio (contemplation).

In this retreat we will seek God’s presence, working in and through all the realities of our aging, the good, the bad and the ugly, using the lectio divina. What better sacred writing to focus upon than the narrative of our own lives, God’s co-creative action within us, through us, and with us, bringing us to human wholeness and sacred holiness.

Try living one day without any unhealthy thoughts. It may be very difficult, but try another day, until it becomes habitual, and life will move in the direction of becoming healthy, vital, and alive.
