Here is the schedule of dates and themes (9:30 am to 2:00pm):
Tuesday, November 28: Mary of Scripture and Tradition
Mary the mother of Jesus, is esteemed in the gospel of Luke as “most blessed among women” (1:42). The Gospels are our primary source for reflecting on and responding to the Mother of Jesus, virgin, and woman, we also will reflect on Mary, the Disciple, and Mary the Woman of Faith.
Tuesday, December 5: Mary’s Fiat
Mary is a model of faith by her ‘fiat’, her yes to her encounter with the angel Gabriel. How are we saying ‘yes’ to God? Are we listening to our own encounters with the Divine? How can Mary be our example in our lives today?
Tuesday, December 12: Mary’s Visit-The Magnificat
Known as the Canticle of Mary in the Liturgy of the Hours, the Magnificat is Mary’s hymn of praise to the Lord. Mary bears the Son of God, she goes to share this news with her visit to her cousin Elizabeth, and we are shown the link between humanity and holiness. We will reflect and meditate on the words of the song while unveiling our own canticle to God.
Tuesday, December 19: “Mary Did You Know?”
While reflecting to the words of this song, we will reflect on the life of Jesus as seen through His mother, and we will commemorate the life of Christ and his Mother. Are we ready for the presence of God to enter into our midst?
