Our CARFLEO Retreat was held online on April 6, 7 & 8, 2021, facilitated by Sr. Mary Rowell and Les Miller. We are gathering the links and resources mentioned over these three days and compiling them here. This will be an ongoing process. Participants, if there are items that you are looking for, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Ron Rolheiser The Power of Beauty
John O’Donohue author of Anam Cara has a website that explains links to aspects of Celtic spirituality
Thin places, the Celts call this space,
Both seen and unseen,
Where the door between the world
And the next is cracked open for a moment
And the light is not all on the other side.
God shaped space. Holy.
Baker’s Woods, Thornhill, Ontario
Blessed be the small things with their Easter proclamations:
spring beauty pushing forth from leaf litter, opening to a white-and-pink prayer,
trout lily ringing in yellow Alleluia bells, bloodroot proclaiming God’s glory,
trillium theologian expounding on the nature of God,
raindrops blessing the spring promises,
swelling maple buds testifying to hope,
sun’s warmth reminding us of grace.
May these echoes of the sacred season bring us ever closer to You.
Les Miller, Northern Light
