Pastor Chris Seay teaches from Rome following a recent invitation to meet Pope Francis. Chris asks us to reflect upon the beauty of the teaching, art, and history we receive from the Catholic Church, and consider how we can acknowledge our differences without becoming further divided from our true identity as one united body in Christ.
John 17: 21
Hebrews 12: 1-2
Chris spoke about the wisdom drawn from our Catholic brothers and sisters; Thomas Merton, Richard Rohr, Teresa of Avila, Francis of Assisi, Henri Nouwen, Teresa of Calcutta, among others. Have you leaned into the spiritual growth that their writing and guidance offer?
Chris spoke at length about the beauty of the artwork commissioned by the Catholic church and the history it tells. Perhaps consider a visit to our local Museum of Fine Arts with the intention of prayerfully considering the breadth of their spiritual collection.
Have you ever considered a spiritual retreat? The sisters of both the Cenacle and the Villa de Matel offer local opportunities to spend time in silence and solitude; a chance to pray and pause in beautiful surroundings.
