Sister Julia in NCR's 'AdventRetreat'

12/23/2020 11:51 am

“That moment of encounter when we feel Christ is with us … we can’t help but to be transformed,” shared Sister Julia Walsh in National Catholic Reporter’s virtual offering of prayer, reflection, song and meditation, “AdventRetreat: Incarnational Encounter.”

“The injustice and suffering that defined the time when love became incarnate is similar to the time we are in,” she expressed, “to the experience of being human in 2020.” Discussion explored “beauty in the darkness,” as shared by ValLimar Jackson, a singer, composer, recording artist, educator, speaker and leader of worship and prayer who offered the parallels of sleep, gestation and seeds taking root in the soil with “the time of darkness over the last nine months.” She gave the invitation to see the darkness of the Coronavirus pandemic and crises of racial equity, democracy, economy, climate and immigration, “as a time of rooting and grounding into our faith.”

You are invited to experience "AdventRetreat: Incarnational Encounter" with Sister Julia.
