A Living Reality

Exploring through Scripture whether and how God is a reality in our daily lives.

Further information to follow.

Sr Maureena Fritz is rated by our guests as an exceptional teacher and retreat leader, who has the rare gift of bringing the Word of God to life and making it relevant to our own personal journeys. “Amazing teacher and beautiful person” and “We hung on her every word! What a fantastic, amazing and gracious woman. I feel privileged to have met her, and do hope there will be a next time!”.

Thankfully there is to be a next time, as we have persuaded Sr Maureena to come all the way from Jerusalem for another Ammerdown retreat in 2015. She will explore whether God a living reality in our lives or merely some abstraction of thought; and in what respect religious life is a matter of true engagement, or simply an expression of inherited behaviours. 

She writes: “My question is whether ‘the love of God’ is a worn out expression we invoke once a week when we go to church, or a daily obsession with Someone who is real in our lives. Or, put another way: is our religious life routine or shot through with daily signals of transcendence?

Maureena will examine these questions by introducing diverse forms of interpretation of Scripture, which will foster attention not only to the sacred text but also to the world and to divine reality. Poetry and film will accompany the study of the Biblical texts.

Led by: Sr Maureena Fritz
