"Praying with Mary" begins on Monday of next week.

Here is a overview:
  • On Monday we will consider Prophecy and Witness including the traditions about Miriam in the Hebrew Bible and Mary of Bethany in John's Gospel
  • On Tuesday we will discuss mystical union, particularly John 20
  • Wednesday will be given over to consideration of the motifs of Repentance, Weeping and Lament
  • Thursday will include consideration of Contemplation and other intellectual activities of Mary
  •  Friday will include discussions of Mary as Theotokos and context of the Council of Ephesus and a look at Mary in popular culture.
Since it is a practicum, we will be spending time each day in exercises of prayer and contemplation using the rosary and traditional Mary prayers. We will say or listen to the Magnificat daily in different musical settings. We will visit the Metropolitan Museum on Wednesday to look at Marian works of art in the early Christian, Byzantine and Medieval galleries. We will eat together each day. It will be an exciting week and I am very much looking forward to it! For online registration, click on the link above or here.
