Sr Maureena writes: “Life itself, with all its ups and downs, is the living Scripture. God’s spirit penetrates the events in all of life and in all the events in the world and invites me to respond.

God is with me, not merely some time and some where, but in every now and in every here.

The word of God that addresses me in this hour is not a word that can be looked up in a guide or holy book; it is a present word that demands my answer by carrying out the responsibility towards it as best I can. Nor can the collective decisions of the group to which I belong, whether community or church, relieve me of this responsibility.

‘Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me.’ (Matthew 10.37)”


This retreat will therefore be all about Choosing Life! The Bible, which is a record of past encounters with God, will serve as a main source of inspiration, but use will also be made daily of modern day films and songs for further inspiration and challenge to our accustomed ways of thinking and acting.


Maureena, a Sister of our Lady of Sion, is Professor and Academic Director of the Bat Kol Institute in Jerusalem – an international ecumenical association of Christians who are committed to the study of Torah (Word of God) as transmitted by Jewish traditions.

She has written several books on Praying with the Hebrew Scriptures.
