Take a pilgrimage during the Year of Mercy
by Sr. Maria Veritas Marks, OP • April 15, 2016
“When April with its sweet-smelling showers / Has pierced the drought of March to the root … Then folk long to go on pilgrimages.” So begins Chaucer’s 14th-century Canterbury Tales.
Pilgrimage used to constitute a familiar thread woven into ordinary Christian life. The faithful regularly undertook journeys to holy sites to thank God for blessings or to make reparation for sins. Yet today, pilgrimage is rare.

Introducing the Life of Christ Lectio Divina Journal!
"Who do you say that I am?" (Mark 8:27)
The Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist and Disciple of Christ - Education in Virtue™ are pleased to introduce the Life of Christ Lectio Divina Journal authored by Sr. John Dominic, OP. This journal was written to allow you to have an encounter with the Person of Jesus Christ. As you journey through the selected scripture passages, you will slowly move through His life, meditating upon His word using lectio divina. This encounter with Truth, Beauty, and Goodness, will show you how a life of virtue becomes an interior habit, a way of life, which enables you to be more open to the Holy Spirit, allowing you to make your own personal commitment to live as a disciple of Christ and be able to answer with conviction the same question Jesus asked His first disciples, "Who do you say that I am?" (Mark 8:27).
Read endorsements from Most Reverend Earl Boyea, Bishop of Lansing, Dr. Mary Healy, Jeff Cavins, Mark Hart, Chris Stefanick, and Dr. Jem Sullivan as they share their thoughts on how the Life of Christ Lectio Divina Journal will help you encounter and know the Person of Jesus Christ!
