From Demons and Dragons to Healing and Grace
For the Lasallian man, there must be a balance of reflection and action. We are called to the awareness of God’s presence in our life and in turn to bring God’s presence to the world through justice and service. There are dragons to be slayed, injustices to be confronted, oppression to be overcome, external obstacles to our dreams for a better life and world. Yet the heroic journeys of history inform us that before the dragons of the outside world can be slain, there is an even more important battle that must take place — the internal battle of the demons within. The prize of our battles and struggles is the experience of God’s healing and grace.
Join us for inspiring presentations, individual and group reflection, and meaningful ritual and prayer.
