Behold the Mystery of Contemplation

On Wednesday we gathered after dinner for the Life Teen Rosary walk around Benedictine College. Imagine 450 high school students walking the campus by pondering the faith mysteries of Mary. Remarkably they all were gazing at God's actions in her. And it is in that "gazing" at the actions of God that is at the heart of contemplation.

In our Rosary walk we meditated on the virtues of God's actions, and thereby stir ourselves to greater virtue. Our contemplation might lead us to ponder the mysteries of God Himself, those great and awesome mysteries that God has revealed to us about Himself.
The way we pray nourishes the soul.
Kristie Farrigan and Miss Erin Ronan gathered at one of the most beautiful views on campus to pray the Rosary.
Our Life Teen day ended with a suprise 16th birthday party for Sean McVeigh in Legacy Hall. Ryan Glass, Thomas Werring, Sean McVeigh, Jay Valentin and John Desepoli ae pictured above while Sean opens his home-made birthday card.
