Mary of Nazareth: Reflections from Joan Chittister

Mary of Nazareth, an eRetreat with Joan Chittister

Mary of Nazareth risked a call into the unknown; was an unwed mother and political refugee; a mother of a scorned prophet and condemned prisoner; and a faithful disciple who never abandoned the vision of a new earth. Reflect on this strong woman with Joan Chittister as she takes a new look at the significant events in the life of Mary and Jesus and, in 20 audio files, introduces you to a woman who lived through difficult and trying circumstances but found the fingerprint of God in all of them. The eRetreat, which follows the mysteries of the Rosary, also include an invitation to chant Mary’s special prayer, the Hail Mary, with the Benedictine Sisters of Erie. Four different meditative Hail Mary chant videos are included. Mary is a woman for the ages, an everywoman. Let her guide you as you respond to your own unique call from God in these times.

This meditation was originally published as In Pursuit of Peace, Praying the Rosary through the Psalms by Joan D. Chittister
