On-going Discussion

A Precious Blood Companion reports they took the article from my blog and used it for their meeting on Monday, May 24th, The Feast of Mary Help of Christians. I am delighted. I offer their experience as a vehicle for on-going discussion.

The article is here.

This is what our Precious Blood Companions did:

We started with Evening Prayer II from the Common of the Blessed Virgin Mary. When we had prayed the psalms and listened to the reading, we turned to your article on the Madonna of the Precious Blood to which I added three reflection questions.

1. How does the Blood of Christ draw you to a relationship with Mary?
2. What kind of response does the image of Mary as the Madonna of the Precious Blood inspire in you? (I also brought copies of the various images that appeared on your blog.)
3. What does it mean to you to be a "living chalice"?

We took 10-15 minutes for everyone to read the article silently and reflect on it. We had a lively conversation - good sharing and then we ended with the Magnificat, some intercessions, the Our Father and closing prayer and a blessing from Fr. Joe.

Keep the discussion going. How about responding to one of their questions in the comments?
