This quiet day will explore three aspects of a life of prayer: the mystery of our lives in the great cloud of witnesses, especially the gift of praying in the company of women, gratitude as a spiritual discipline and intercession as a primary contemplative practice. Brief addresses, supported by scripture and art, will be followed by times for quiet reflection and journaling, guided by suggestions for meditation on the themes.
