All of you are the children of God, through faith, in Christ Jesus, since every one of you that has been baptized has been clothed in Christ. There can be neither Jew nor Greek, there can be neither slave nor free, there can be neither male nor female -- for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

Galatians 3:26-28

Meditation on 9 phases of progressive enlightenment. Reflections on a Thangka painting portraying stages according to Mahamudra Practice
Hello everyone, In our gathering yesterday at MoM's Centering Prayer group, we spent some time gazing upon, meditating and praying with icons. I sensed a deepening and connection in this practice with most members there. One new member who hadn't centered before (we did have a centering prayer sit) discussed some difficulty in centering as one works with formlessness, esp. how to handled busy mind and thoughts/questions arising during prayer. We discussed the Buddhist notion of the 'monkey mind.' A part of that "monkey mind" teaching comes from a Buddhist Mahamudra Thangka (like an icon) from the East. Catherine, who was in attendance yesterday, requested the link the youtube video which describes successive paths to enlightens and inner unity..... Ronald Mendyke

We invite you to join us to share in the joy, peace, friendship, healing and love that God's Word, communion and Spirit provide.  We see ourselves as a spiritual refugee camp for the many disenfranchised, disillusioned and dishonored faithful Catholics who want to live their faith true to the vision of the Vatican II Council.

Dear All,

​Tomorrow's Gospel parable is of the vineyard owner who asks disgruntled employees​, "Am I not free to do as I please with my own money?" He paid the same wage to all workers regardless of their time in his vineyard.
Here's my question. Is it enough to be free just to be free, or is it about being free to be fair? Because the owner has chosen to honor the priority of a living wage in this story. Come tomorrow and we'll discuss.
In body or in spirit we gather tomorrow at 9:45. See you then.
Readings: 1) Isaiah 55:6-9; 2) Philippians 1:20c-24, 27a; 3) Matthew 20:1-16a.
Take care,
Jim
