The morning prayer had a centerpiece with some of the key documents relevant to Journeying Together. The prayer took the story of Moses before the burning bush to emphasize the sacredness of the experience of the OP.
The morning was devoted to ‘conversations’ on the Eucharist. The Brothers took part of the CLT document on the Eucharist as the basis for the discussion. Each Brother was invited to spend time alone reflecting on his understanding of Eucharist and on the connection between Eucharist and life. Thereafter followed a very rich discussion on the place of Eucharist in our lives.
Following the first session, the group then tackled the theology of the Eucharist, and it became clear that the theology of Eucharist is a topic worthy of further discussion.
In the afternoon, Br Francis Hall facilitated the session on the Outreach aspect of the OP, inviting Brothers to reflect on how the previous experience impacted on each one, and inviting Brothers to explore the possibility of engaging in a wider choice of possible Outreach sites.
