Yesterday I went to Grace Cathedral and prayed at the icon of Mary Magdalene. I am specifically praying for the Companions of Mary the Apostle, a new religious/spiritual community which is springing up, currently based at Holy Cross Monastery in West Park, New York. I was involved with them for several years and continue to watch and pray from afar as a new vision for an unabashed place for the spiritual feminine takes root and begins to grow.
I am particularly praying for Shane and E, and for the women who have gathered around them, that they may be open to the moving of the Spirit in planting and nurturing a new way of spiritual community. Prayers, prayers!
