Praying the Gestures of Autumn – Opening to Transformation

Réjeanne Bourque with the Sisters of Notre Dame Community at Andrews

This was the theme of the three-day retreat we were fortunate to have with Sister Becky McKenna, CND,  on October 17-19. We had three days in May with Sister Becky and this "Triduum" completed our annual retreat. With beautiful visuals, inspiring music, opportunities for creative expression, appropriate handouts and profound reflections, Sister Becky led us through a meaningful spiritual journey. We were reminded that we must be like the autumn leaves and learn to "let go." This letting go brings about transformation into new life. In keeping with that Year of Mercy, our call to receive and extend mercy was also highlighted. Sister Becky's parting gift was a little bag for each of us containing three symbols: a maple leaf (letting go), a butterfly (transformation) and a heart (mercy). We are most grateful for this wonderful retreat experience.
