YEAR OF CONSECRATED LIFE – Oklahoma City, OK

We are having Vespers at the Pastoral Center on January 25th. Archbishop Coakley will preside. All consecrated men and woman have been invited as well as all of the faithful. A reception will follow. Because the Archdiocese does not have an Office for Religious, Kay and I have worked on coordinating this event.

NEW STORY

Some have asked about reading material on the New Story and how this influences our prayer. The best book I have found to help us “get into” the New Story and invite us to further exploration is a small paperback: Praying a New Story by Michael Morwood. (Orbis Books, 2004. 140 pages). The author offers the story of all life existing in God; of God’s creative Spirit existing always and everywhere throughout the universe and right here among us. He suggests our prayer be less about talking to God and more about reflecting on what it means “to allow God’s presence to come to freer expression in us.” (p.11). The prayers in the book are suitable for group use and lend themselves well to brief and meaningful reflective rituals.
