The Sacred Gaze Part II with Fr. Terry Ryan, CSP

August 24, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Saturday, August 24th
10 am to noon
Third Street Center, Carbondale

When we look at ourselves we sometimes get a distorted image. We see only our limitations and inadequacies. We feel that we are never enough. The Sacred Gaze is how God looks at us. This is the great second opinion of ourselves from God’s loving point of view. The contemplative life is a way to see ourselves through the gaze of the Sacred. We find that we never have to impress God with a resume of an illusional limitless self. God is a relationship, not a job interview. God loves. God does not fire us or reject us, or judge us for mistakes. The contemplative path lets go of the negative self-image, the self-judgment, and the compare/contrast with popular culture. We get to the ground of our divine nature.
