Blesses Frances Healing Charism Today
"What we do with our heart affects the whole universe."
What indeed, are your heart’s holdings? What gives you a sense of deep hope and sincere compassion? What brings you to healing?
Last June many had the opportunity to partake in the Congregational Conference, Healing Gift: Today and Beyond. The Conference proved for those in attendance to be a rich opportunity with challenging presenters, exposure to alternative healing modalities and endless international exchange and dialogue. The energy produced within the Conference has been kept alive and vibrating in motion through Assemblies, Gatherings, Circles and informal meetings.
In December/January, the Congregation provided everyone with a copy of the 2012 Healing Calendar yet another means of deepening personal and communal healing through prayer.
