On this special New Year’s retreat, we will bring closure to 2017 as well as ask God’s Blessings upon 2018. What is a Blessing? A Blessing is a circle of light drawn around a person to protect, heal and strengthen. When a blessing is invoked, a window opens in eternal time. This is where blessing invokes and awakens every gift the crossing has to offer.
W.B. Yeats short poem expresses this well:
“I sat, a solitary man,
In a crowded London shop,
An open book and empty cup
On the marble table top.
While on the shop and street I gazed
My body of a sudden blazed;
And twenty minutes more or less
It seemed, so great my happiness,
That I was blessed and could bless.”
As a special part of this retreat, we will celebrate Mass ending at Midnight New Years Eve with festive Champaign, wine, hor’dorves, a fire pit, etc.
