A Quiet Day exploring how the Desert Fathers and Mothers can help us both in our everyday spiritual lives and in ‘wilderness experiences’ like the pandemic.
This will be a day of reflection, worship and spaces for quiet, drawing on teachings and anecdotes from the colourful characters who went into the deserts of Egypt, Palestine and Syria from the 4th century onwards. While the Desert Fathers and Mothers can seem eccentric in their self-denial and sometimes strange actions, they were also generous hosts and wise guides. We will explore some ways in which their freedom of spirit and utter self-abandonment to God can inspire and encourage us now.
Very soon after the day we will send you, as email attachments, some further material for reflection on the themes addressed.
