Marmion monks offer a 'Summer of Seeking II'
The monks at Marmion Abbey in Aurora continue their "Summer of Seeking II" series from 7 to 8 p.m. Wednesdays on Zoom. Join them in exploring the meaning of Mass. There are new topics each week followed by a question-and-answer time. It is free and open to the public.
The topics continue on:
• July 1 with "Salvation History." Brother Theodore narrates the story of every Mass: mankind's salvation.
• July 8 with "Mass and the World." Discover how to see the sacraments all around you.
• July 15 with "Mass and Work." Sunday is a day off but see how it makes your workweek count.
• July 22 with "Mass and Your Home." Explore how you can make your home a place of prayer.
• July 29 with " The Music of the Mass." Father Eusebius leads participants through the treasure of sacred music.
• Aug. 5 with "Stories of the Mass." Hear stories about the Mass in movies and books.
The series began June 3 with sharing some of the reasons that bring you to Mass. It continued on June 10 with "Sin and Reconciliation" as Brother Theodore highlighted the moments of mercy in the Mass.
On June 17, participants explored the glorious beauty of Mass. It was followed on June 24 by "Reverence and Awe" where participants learn how to pray more deeply by finding out what their gestures at Mass mean.
