A message from the coordinator…
Diane Harkin

  I pray that you are able to embrace the beauty of the moment and enjoy it as it is. Acceptance of reality is a key factor in our spiritual journey. By learning to accept things as they are without trying to change, maneuver or control them, we can find peace even in the midst of the most challenging situations.

  In his June newsletter, Thomas explains that powerlessness is our greatest treasure. In powerlessness we discover God's grace. Let us embrace it rather than trying to get rid of it: "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness." (2 Cor: 12:9).

  Transformation does not require great spiritual experiences, says Thomas. It is in coming to terms with our ordinary human weaknesses as we experience them, that we are purified.   Usually, it is through the pains of the "dark nights of the soul"-- that feeling of alienation or separation from God, of being confused and ungrounded, of being in a state of total helplessness that we are made new.  This disposition of utter dependence on God--of being emptied, brings ultimate surrender and the fullness of grace.  In time we can even welcome our weakness as the alchemical vessel through which we discover the gold in ourselves.

  We are looking forward to a new year of spiritual growth and renewal.  Steve Standiford came to our Sept 13th Prayer Day at St Patrick's.  His spiritual presentation invited us to go deeper into our under- standing of who we are in Him.  Also on this day Frank Jelenek, the author of the children's book on Centering Prayer, is coming and will be available for book signing.

  On Oct 11, Fr. Quinn is going to present the Introduction to Metta Prayer, A Prayer of Compassion. This prayer is powerful and will open our minds to a new awareness of kindness and understanding.

  We are blessed to have Rosemary Camas on November 8.  She will do a special presentation on the saints.  Through her gifted acting skills, the saints will come alive in a unique way.  Rosemary has asked us to think about a modern day saint in our life and come prepared to share how they have touched us.


On Dec. 13, Fr Bill Sheehan is giving a one day Centering Prayer Retreat at Mariandale.  Space is limited so we invite you to register early.

Frank Squitteri, facilitator of the Wednesday night Centering Prayer group at Our Lady of Sorrows in White Plains, passed away peacefully on Sept 26. Frank was a gifted and insightful writer whose article "Toward a Beloved Community" will be published in the March/April2015 issue of Emmanuel Magazine. We are grateful for his faithful service
