The focus will be on the humility of Mary, the praise of Zechariah, and the worship of the Magi using relevant Scripture texts in tandem with art masterpieces of Dieric Bouts, Murillo, and Velazquez.
We will dialogue with the art and Scripture, considering their meaning for us today, with the goal of deepening our personal prayer and praise. Poetry and sacred music will also be our companions in prayer.
The rising sun has come to us from heaven... to guide our feet into the path of peace.
