This Advent retreat invites you to step away and allow yourself the privilege of quiet reflection on the scriptures and other expressions that focus on Wisdom’s holy ways. “In her, there is a spirit that is intelligent, holy, unique, manifold, subtle, mobile…all-powerful, overseeing all and penetrating through all spirits.” Advent is our celebration of the Timeless entering into our Time and coming to be among us as one of us, and literally through one of us. Being. Becoming. Attending. You are invited to reflect on your own journey of awaiting “the fullness of time”. With Mary of Nazareth as our companion, we will explore the hidden power that lies in hopeful expectation. We will join her in wonder and waiting and linger with the gestating life we discover within.
Led by Sister Colleen Mary Mallon, a Dominican Sister of Mission San Jose, California and associate professor of systematic theology at Aquinas Institute of Theology. Her ministry also involves the theological and spiritual formation of lay leaders for ministry within the church.
