Standing Vigil: A Retreat with Sunday’s Gospel

The journey from text to pulpit is a long and Spirit-filled experience for any homilist. Always, one must follow the Word of God deeper into prayer and reflection about the challenges of life and the persistence of divine grace. Join Paul Tillman, an Oblate and pastor, for an afternoon of prayer and conversation about the Sunday Gospel (John 2:1-11).

The Kingdom of God may be compared to a wedding feast. By sharing music, memories, and a meal, and working through the Sunday text of the Wedding at Cana, participants will spend time reflecting on their human and divine relationships, and explore the challenges of living in covenant relationship.

Then join the Sisters for Vigil, hear Paul preach the same text, and enjoy more time together over dinner.
