Praying with Icons @ Monastery Immaculate Conception

Christianity has long cherished a tradition of praying with sacred images, from lighting votive candles before beloved statues, to walking the Stations of the Cross, to praying with icons. In this retreat, we will explore the theology of icons, and will become familiar with different ways of praying with sacred images. Beyond exploration of some liturgical forms of prayer, we will learn about and have time to practice various devotional kinds of prayer with images, including praying with Scripture, colloquy (conversation with God), the Jesus Prayer, and silent contemplation.
