Lent can seem so demanding, the road to Easter so long. Where do we even begin? “Listen,” Saint Benedict would advise, “Listen with the ear of your heart.” Weaving together Scripture, story and Benedictine wisdom, Mary Stommes will lead us to reflect on listening as a rich and fruitful Lenten practice. If we become better listeners— to God and to everyday life—we will more easily recognize the hope and joy of Easter that awaits us at journey’s end. Noon Prayer with the monastic community at 11:30 a.m. is optional.
