PREPARING WITHIN OURSELVES A PLACE FOR THE LORD
Friday, December 11-Sunday, December 13, 2020
In this workshop we will reflect on examples and writings of monastic contemplatives who experienced, especially during the season of Advent, a call to prepare a place for Christ in their hearts through attentivenss to sacred liturgy. Especially prominent among the sources we will study are the writings of St. Gertrude the Great, the Advent hymn, Rorate Coeli, and the Great O Antiphons.
