I am the Northeastern Regional Prayer Guardian for the Council of Aidan and Hilda in the United States. I am interested in finding new ways to incorporate monastic ideals into my life and community. I also have begun a public group in New York City dedicated to meeting, networking and praying with others in the New York metropolitan area who are dedicated to new monastic, specifically Celtic christian, ideals.
Are you involved in some form of intentional community or community of intention?
Chris, thank you. I shall pray for your journey beginning today. Contemplative Outreach (Fr. Thomas Keating) is sponsoring a pilgrimmage to Spain in September to see places connected with St. Teresa of Avila and St. John of the Cross. I briefly considered being a part of this pilgrimmage. You are braver than I to embark on a Spanish pilgrimmage by yourself. I admire your courage. May God guide you as you prepare and may you follow the leading of the Holy Spirit.
Chris: May God bless you richly and abundantly, you and all whom you serve. I am glad to make a connection with you and pray that it will be rewarding and fulfilling to each of us. Please let me know if there is anything that I can do for you.
