Have you experienced someone coming back to the Church after being away for a period of time?

Each one of us is on a spiritual journey, the road of discipleship. Both knowledge and experience are fundamental elements to the spiritual life and the formation of disciples. To this end, I introduce ‘With Hearts Burning’: A spiritual reflection process for clergy, religious, parishioners, and schools. ‘With Hearts Burning’ focuses on understanding the Emmaus mystery [Lk 24:13-35] to interpret our present reality.

Over the next twelve months, I will be releasing one reflection module every two months in order to facilitate discussion and increase understanding of the Emmaus mystery. In regards to experience, I have commissioned Michael Pervan to write a tryptic (three fold) icon of the Emmaus mystery. It is my vision that the icon will visit each parish church and school during the following twelve months. Accompanied by prayer and teaching resources, the visit of the icon will be an opportunity to experience the Emmaus mystery. I hope the Icon becomes a highlight in your community.
