Magnificat: A persistent profession of faith and hope in the face of grief, injustice, pride, fear, and hunger. In this retreat, we will immerse ourselves in this powerful Marian prayer, seeking words & images as to how this God-sent hopeful season of waiting- Advent- nurtures our lives now.
The words and image will become a set of four labels, one for each week of Advent,
and to be used with an Advent wreath at home. We will prepare for our work with a little history, as to how and when this prayer is used among various Christian communities, and a bit of listening and singing various versions,
This day is an invitation into this season of hopeful waiting, with much quiet, calm and hope.
