Praying with Sacred Images – via Zoom
October 16, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm$25
“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.”
– Matthew 5:8
Contemplative Outreach of Maryland and Washington invites you to join us Saturday, Oct. 16 for half-day retreat (via Zoom) focusing on “Praying with Sacred Images” led by Rev. Carole Crumley.
Jesus tells his followers that there is a graced way of seeing that draws us toward God. Praying with holy icons, an ancient-yet-ever-new spiritual practice, is a vital way of training the contemplative eye for this graced way of seeing. It is a precious means of teaching, prayer and opening to divine presence. Praying with sacred images is a way of schooling the spiritual eye, inviting us deeper into the wholeness/oneness of God and sensitizing us to letting everything we see become a potential icon of God.
Our time will include some sharing of our own experiences of praying with sacred images as well as time to be together in prayer with a holy icon.
Rev. Carole Crumley is the retired senior program director of Shalem Institute and former canon educator and founder of the Center for Prayer and Pilgrimage at Washington National Cathedral. A sought-after retreat and conference leader, Carole continues to teach and lead pilgrimages to sacred sites in Europe, the Middle East, and the U.S. Carole is a lover of storytelling, moveable feasts, and country music.
