The Pastorelle Sisters’ house in Bundoora is often the place where days of prayer and reflection are offered to people who wish to take the opportunity to “come and rest a while with the Lord”.
The theme for the day was Communication - “I have come that you may have life and have it to the full” Jn 10:11.
The day was planned in such a way as to offer the group the opportunity to reflect on their image of God and their experience of relating to God, both personally and as a couple. Also, to ponder on God’s desire to communicate with us, especially through the person of Jesus.
Rublev’s icon of the Blessed Trinity was at the centre of Sr. Rita’s first input as a commentary on the life giving communication that exists in the life of the Blessed Trinity: the love, trust, openness, self giving at work in our Triune God.
In a second reflection, the couples were invited to engage in a conversation on the Christian understanding of the human person.
