Behold the Mystery

Today our tired Life Teen twenty-seven rose early to attend the first optional Bible Study with Mark Hart. The Bible Geek kept us entertained as we explored 2 Samuel 7 and Luke 1:6. The focus was Mary as the new Ark. This was our first full day at the Life Teen Conference.
Peter Samson, Paul Kronenberg and Ryan Glass gathered together for a group discussion after a presentation in the college gym.
Jay Valentin, Sean McVeigh and David Mulry listen attentively while the others in our group share some personal challenges in their lives.
Juliana Restivo and Michael Kurczak pause for a moment during our first night dinner. Pork and ribs was the featured entree at this Atchison downtwon restaurant.

Our day was filled with prayer, silence, presentations, recreation and, of course, lots of food. We prayed the Liturgy of the Hours, celebrated Mass in the Abbey Church, strolled outside for silent time, and ended the day with Eucharistic Adoration.

Tomorrow some of us will be up to pray Morning Prayer with the Benedictine Monks in th Abbey Church.

Pray for us!
