Reflections in Solitude: Week 11 – 7 June 2020

This week’s reflections in solitude come from one of the sisters at the Benedictine Abbey in Jamberoo NSW. In keeping with the theme of creation, Sr Magdalen offers a beautiful reflection on the falling of a fig tree near the retreat cottages during a recent storm. 

I found Magdalen’s words challenging, reassuring, and illuminating. Though they were written for Ascension Day, I feel they fit especially well with this week’s Genesis reading and I commend this video to you. You are encouraged to watch it where indicated in the worship guide or whenever you wish:

Peace to you all,
