2013 - Touched by the Holy: Contemplation, Gratitude, and Compassion
Watering the Roots at the Wellspring of Mercy, June 23-28, 2013. Overview of the Week Three programme. Presenter: Janet Ruffing rsm (Americas)
Participants will explore the deep roots of mercy spirituality in the interpenetration of contemplation and action in our lives as women in the church today. We will explore the mystical roots of compassion with guidance from Julian of Norwich and Meister Eckhart, the healing of the soul wounds inflicted on the feminine through exploring Teresa of Avila, and the relationship between non-violence and compassion in Catherine McAuley and Julian of Norwich. Finally, we will ponder the mystery of "joys and sorrows mingled" as we embrace the prophetic dimensions of our service to church and world.
