Thoughts for Reflection from Benedictine & Monastic Authors

Day by Day

Meeting Christ in His Mysteries

The Liturgical Year, the Icon, and Personal Prayer as Mysteries

Radiating from the mysteries of scripture, baptism and the Eucharist come church’s liturgical year, the manifestation of Christ’s mysteries in the cycles of time;  the mystery of the icon, which extends the transforming power of the incarnation and the Eucharist out into the material world; and the mystery of personal prayer, in which Christ manifests His presence in the temple of the heart through meditating on scripture.  Page 101
