Cultivating a Life of Contemplation & Compassion

October 11, 2020 – Present


Liturgy adapted from worshipdesignstudio.com/beauty
 
All things are beautiful–not by a standard of “pretty” as seen by our eyes, but by an essence of sacred worth that is sensed by the spirit. This is the root and heart of compassion and justice.
 
Beauty is the threshold to Divine Goodness and a door into radical compassion. “The difficulty and crisis of the world is overwhelming. It is virtually impossible to bear it without very deep resources. A life of prayer does not take us out of life but deeper into it.”
