"You are in God, and God is in you." Richard Rohr, OFM

Advent is a time to contemplate Incarnation, remembering the revelation that matter and spirit are not separate. God lives in the heart and body of the world.

What is being revealed to us in this Divine birth—about love, about life, about ourselves? Maybe our angels, God’s messengers, will give us some suggestions.

Come and join us for a day of rest and reflection. There will be time for prayer, for art making, and walking the labyrinth and sacred grounds of Mercy Center. This day is an invitation to retreat from the busy season, and dwell in silence and “the birth of the Word in the soul,” as Meister Eckhart tells us.
