the retreat i’m at this weekend includes an extended prayer time. i had the chance to set it up and it’s based on vices and virtues. there is a station for a number of vices [sins, wrongs] with a corresponding virtue on the side. the idea is that we are taking the wrongs in the world and in our lives and offering them in forgiveness and repentance to God. then we are asking him to help build up in us the corresponding virtue. it’s pretty cool.
then i was reminded of one of my favorite prayer exercises that is now also a web site. it’s an online version of a LABYRINTH. it’s a chance to journey inward to clear the noise and sin in our lives until we meet with Christ, then journey outward with Christ to return to the world that we are called to live in and love in the name of Christ.
you can try it HERE. it’s seriously worth your time.
