Dialogue toward Communion
Dialogue is a dramatic experience . . . It invites us to move and discover the context from which we speak and express our ideas, choices and feelings.
St. Madeleine Sophie was a woman of relationships and dialogue. The Chapter 2008 document tells us that it is from Sophie that "we learn the value of nurturing, intimacy, patience and love as attitudes of the heart which draw us into communion. With a contemplative heart inhabited by the Spirit, we listen to the world as it shares its hopes and suffering. Here we find the Heart of
Jesus incarnate in history, which calls us to new
relationships with others and with all creation as one body."
Again, there is much to reflect on and to see how this is being lived in my own life!
