    Praying with Icons

    10.30-15.30The Kairos Centre

    A Retreat Association Quiet Day led by Sr Magdalen Lawler SND

    Beginning with the newly commissioned icon of the Woman at the Well, we will explore the value of gazing with inner eyes at the mysteries enshrined in icons. Using ancient mindfulness practices the icons open up to us ways of understanding Christ and his message for today.

    Magdalen is a Sister of Notre Dame, living in Bermondsey, SE London. She trained at St Beuno’s and was part of the Ignatian retreat team at Loyola Hall and elsewhere. Since her retirement she has worked in retreats and spiritual direction. She has a special interest in women’s spirituality and in the relationship between spirituality and the visual arts. Her interest in icons was part of her degree dissertation.

    Her most recent publications are Christ, Our Morning Star, Love bade me Welcome and Show us the Father all published by Pauline Media UK.
