OP Nun Joy No. 2:  Receiving the Fruits of our Brothers’ Contemplation

 

In an earlier post we spoke about one of the greatest joys in the life of a Dominican nun.  Here is another greatest joy: to have our friars share with us the fruits of their contemplation!  Br. Lupe Gonzalez, O.P., one of our cooperator brothers, spent a morning giving us an interactive presentation on Dominican spirituality and in particular the pillars of prayer and study, part of a program he is developing for Dominican laity.

In the end, we were left with a wonderful tool for better understanding Dominican spirituality as well as practical suggestions for integrating study and prayer.  It was a wonderful, highly entertaining journey and when the bell rang, we wished we had more time to continue.

Thank you, Brother!
