The Prayer of Forgiveness
April 20-23, 2017
Saint Benedict Center in Schuyler, Nebraska
This was a wonderful opportunity to work with a great lady (Mary Dwyer!) as well as steep ourselves in prayer and the practice of forgiveness. I went to this retreat not knowing what – or who – I would be working with. I was surprised at the way this prayer worked in me and allowed me awareness to what God was doing in me. Wonderful! ~patty
She’s back!! Nebraska Contemplative Outreach is pleased to welcome back Mary Dwyer. Mary was here is 2015 and presented on the Welcoming Prayer and we have invited her back to present The Prayer of Forgiveness.
Forgiveness is central to Jesus’s message calling us to forgive “from the heart”, yet in today’s world how does one really forgive? Is forgiving forgetting? Is forgiving condoning? Does forgiveness mean reconciliation?
This retreat will explore these questions and share both the Process of Forgiveness as well as specific practices to Forgive (including the Forgiveness Prayer as articulated by Mary Mrozowski). To be a Christian mandates a willingness to Forgive, but as the old adage goes, ‘to err is human, to forgive is Divine.’
This workshop will give you understanding and a a safe place to process the prayer. The Prayer of Forgiveness is one of the practices that can help contemplatives make conscious, loving choices. Silence will be observed except during presentations. Centering Prayer will be offered several times a day.
