Encountering Christ: From Trust Unto Surrender Virtual Book (PDF)
You are loved from unto Eternity. This companion follows the trajectory of the ever-expanding loves that we experience on both the natural and supernatural levels of our being and our existence. We develop trust in God as we know ourselves to be beloved daughters, sisters, and friends. As this awareness and experience blossoms and heals, we deepen in our capacity to surrender to a love that is spousal and fruitful. No matter what our vocational calling is, it is always a call to life-giving love.
In prayer we enter a space of discovering how deeply we are loved, especially as we encounter Jesus Christ who came not to condemn but to save. Whatever the wounds and the fears and the doubts that we carry within us, he meets us just as he met the woman on the way in his three years of public ministry. Pondering what is revealed to us in the gospel, and the ways that great artists over the centuries have depicted the encounters between Christ and the women he loved, may we enter a space of deeper trust that will enable us to surrender ourselves with radical abandon to the God who loves us.
Along with 6 lessons on praying with art and Scripture with these themes, you are invited to pray the Litany of Trust found in the front cover of the book, and the Surrender Novena at the back of the book. It is our hope that as you grow in trust, you enter the freedom of ever deeper surrender to the God who loves you.
