In this retreat at FCJ Retreat and Conference Centre, in Calgary, Sr Madeleine fcJ will take some time to listen to and pray with some of the Scriptures around which George Handel wrote Messiah. It will focus on the texts that belong to the Advent and Christmas Seasons. After some time of guided and then silent meditation, participants will share on the texts that most appealed to them. Then, they will sit back, relax, and let the music wash over us, as they listen in a new way to the beautiful message of the Incarnation of the Son of God.
I did think I did see all Heaven before me and the great God Himself.
Attributed to Handel, on composing Messiah (1741)
