OL Guadalupe SMS007

The story of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Every year during Advent we celebrate the anniversary of the visit of Mary to St. Juan Diego on the hill of Tepeyac – or Guadalupe – outside of Mexico City – on December 12 – 500 years ago. Hear the story, harp, and song-prayer, “Mary My Mother.”

Friday Station SMS006

A Friday tradition is to take that day of the week and remember in some way that it was the day Jesus suffered and died. Because Jesus allowed this to happen out of love for us, this remembrance is not about guilt or shame, but about love – pure, unconditional love.

Meditation Wednesday SMS004

On Wednesday’s podcast, we will practice different types of prayer and meditation together.  Today we’ll be experiencing Lectio Divina – the Holy Word – in a style of centering prayer that is centuries old.

In Lectio Divina the reading from Scripture, the Bible, is read several times.  Each time it is read slowly, the pray-er, the person meditating – is drawn deeper into the meaning and he or she allows it to become part of them.

Welcome to the journey inward!
