Friday, June 26 – Sunday, June 28
Led by Elizabeth Broyles, CMA and Mr. Paul Kimmerling
Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves. Rainer Maria Rilke’s advice in Letters to a Young Poet points us to a powerful way to journey. We human beings have grappled with the great questions that arise as part of the spiritual quest for at least as long as we have had language. The scriptures grapple, too. What is my relationship with God? My sisters and brothers? Creation? Am I my brother’s keeper? asks Cain of God. Jesus queries the disciples: Who do you say that I am? Come and practice being patient with all that is unsolved. Listen soulfully with others on the Way as the nourishing and challenging questions teach us. Bring your curiosity and a journal.
Sr. Elizabeth delights in accompanying others as they seek to live their questions. A priest, spiritual director and retreat leader, she is co-founder of the Companions of Mary the Apostle, a new community for women that is in residence on the grounds of Holy Cross Monastery.
Paul Kimmerling is a retreat and workshop leader, spiritual director, practitioner of contemplative photography, and a board member of the Companions of Mary the Apostle. Read more about Paul, and his work, at http://www.paulkimmerling.com/
