Beginning with a visual meditation on one of Pope Francis’s favorite paintings—Mary Untier of Knots (Augsburg, c. 1700)—we will explore the power of intercessory prayer to Mary in the context of two major themes of Advent—the coming to fullness of the Reign of God and the coming of Jesus in the Incarnation. Participants are invited to bring their favorite images of Mary to share during this one-day retreat. Mass, time for confessions, and lunch will be included.
