Advent at OLA
Advent Lectio Divina
Wednesdsays during Advent from 12-12:30pm in the Daily Chapel
Please join us at midday on the Wednesdays during Advent as we pray during Eucharistic Adoration in the ancient tradition of Lectio Divina. Lectio Divina, translated: “Divine Reading”, was practiced in the first monasteries as a means of prayer in the company of the Scriptures. Silence, repetition, reflection and rest helps us to “pray” the text.
Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God - A Holy Day of Obligation
Wednesday, January 1, 2020
"That the Blessed Virgin Mary is the Mother of God means that the child—conceived in her womb by the power of the Holy Spirit, carried in her body for nine months, and born into this world—is God. As such, this celebration highlights the pivotal truth of the Church’s Faith: that God has, in Jesus Christ, accepted a human nature, chosen to be born into this world as we have all been born into this world, and has lived a real, human life."
