Behold Your Life: A Pilgrimage Through Your Memoriesby Macrina Wiederkehr
In this forty-day pilgrimage, Wiederkehr guides us to let go of/b>
Sometimes on life's long road it is helpful to pause and reflect on the journey we are making. Behold Your Life is such an invitation. Macrina Wiederkehr encourages us to reflect on our memories, both joyous and painful, so that we can move into the future with new wisdom and strength.
In this forty-day pilgrimage, Wiederkehr guides us to let go of bitterness and blame and to prayerfully, simply behold our lives. On each day of this retreat she helps us to open the door of memory and journey again with Jesus down our life's path. From the moment of our conception, through the joys and pains of childhood and adolescence, and on to the quest for love and the fullness of life in adulthood, she leads us to recognize the ever present, loving touch of God. Each day begins with a scriptural reference and a suggestion for exploring our memories.
Wiederkehr then offers a guided meditation in which we enter more deeply into those memories. Finally, she provides an original prayer to gather together the fragments we have recovered.
Behold Your Life is a wonderful resource for a healing retreatduring Lent or whenever the Spirit of God urges us to embrace our memories and discover the goodness hidden in our wounds.
