Tuesday July 9: The Word of God - Listen,
Catechesis focused on the Word of God: listen, love, look,
and Lectio too! At Mass this afternoon Fr. Jerry Byrd
presided and we had the most amazing gospel acclamation, thanks to
the great composition of Curtis Stephan, and arranged by Janèt
Sullivan Whitaker and Mark Sullivan. After the t-shirt exchange,
there was an optional pilgrimage to the Marian shrines. In
the evening everyone enjoyed an ice cream social with the monks,
and then the dance. At night small groups got together for
theological reflection, then a little night prayer before bed. We
are blessed beyond belief that brought such a community together
here on this holy hill, this place of perfect peace!
Day two catechesis focused on the Word of God. Opportunities for recreation, a t-shirt exchange, and an optional pilgrimage to the Marian shrines. In the evening everyone enjoyed an ice cream social with the monks, and then the dance.
