OLC Book Club – Focusing on Spirituality

Our OLC Book Club is returning for a second season! It is a different kind of book club because the focus is on spirituality.

Future titles will be selected on a monthly basis, with the help of suggestions from participants.

If you have not attended in the past you are very welcome to join us this month!

Sisters Mary O’Brien, CP, and Anna Marie Becker, CP, are the moderators.  Long-time retreatants will remember Sister Anna Marie, whom we are happy to welcome back to OLC after nearly twenty years of service at a retreat center in Tennessee.

Come and see. Share your insights and your observations, your questions, and your enthusiasms.  Interaction with other book lovers will enrich your understanding and appreciation of the books we share.

Spirituality and Art: Eaten by God

As an artist and one who takes time every day for mindful Centering prayer, I’ve come to see the connection between the meditative, contemplative process and the creative process.  Simone Weil, the 20th-century French philosopher, and mystic summed it up in a particular passage about going to the center of the Labyrinth and being eaten by God.

In our day together we will explore this metaphor and talk about the relation between art and prayer.  I will then give some tips on looking at (sacred) art, with time for questions about the process.  Then we will take some time to look at some pieces of my art that I will have available. We will then finish with a sharing on our experience of hearing the talk and looking mindfully at the artwork.

Presenter: Brother Michael Moran, C.P., is an artist whose work is collected and exhibited throughout the world. He was recently featured in an article in VISION magazine.
