That place of clinging with fear goes way back into my childhood ” of being forgotten, unnoticed”. The welcome prayer has been a blessing in my life, where I can hand over that place as often as the need arises. I just participated in a virtual Mass. It is “God’s continual “alluring” that accompanies me into the descent and the countless “touchings the hem of Christ’s garment”. The path of ‘meekness’ has been/is a gradual descent. How often have I begged/do beg for courage…. as humility accompanies me.
Tonight I begin a virtual retreat through Queen’s House Retreat Centre in Saskatoon Saskatchewan where Father Ron Rolheiser is leading us into “Naming the present moment with its struggles, challenges and the invitation to be a blessings for others.”
