MARY SOUTHARD, CSJ
Art and Image — Food for the Soul
Thursday 6:30-8:30 pm
“Visio Divina” is visual prayer: it invites us into an encounter with The Holy through beholding an image. We might say image and symbol are the language of the soul. Icons have been used for meditation for centuries in Eastern Christianity. In this program we will be guided in ways to explore and practice “contemplative seeing” as we pray with images.
Mary Southard, CSJ is best known for her Creative work. Her paintings and sculptures explore and give expression to the wonder and beauty of Creation, and to the hungers of the human soul. Mary is an experienced educator and retreat facilitator whose joy is to be with others as they discover the creativity within themselves.
