Father Carl Arico
Those of you who have ever experienced Fr. Carl’s retreats know that he asks three questions each evening as an examen: What needs to be healed? What needs to be forgiven? What needs to be celebrated?
Most of us spend a lot of time dealing with our healing and forgiving but very little time on what needs to be celebrated, especially celebrating how God has worked in our lives or even how Fr. Keating’s presence has impacted us on our journey. Because of that there is imbalance in our lives. Where is the JOY? Where is the HOPE and TRUST?
Our time together will focus on one or two important events in our lives through the lenses of our daily routine, the human condition, spiritual practices, the surprise graces (God winks), and the magnification (manifestation) of it for others.
Serendipitously, Fr. Carl Arico will be joining us on the first anniversary of our Memorial Mass for Fr. Thomas Keating. How awesome it was to celebrate the life of Fr. Thomas Keating and his “Surrender to Love”. Let us take some time to celebrate our own life in a spirit of gratitude for all the Lord has done for us.
Fr. Arico is honored to have known Fr. Keating since 1969 and believes whole-heartedly in the purpose of Contemplative Outreach. As testament to his faith in the power of contemplative prayer, Fr. Arico has practiced Centering Prayer since 1975 and taught the prayer since 1978. He also was present for the first intensive Centering Prayer retreat that Father Keating offered at the Lama Foundation in San Cristobal, New Mexico in 1983, which many founding members of Contemplative Outreach attended.
Fr. Arico will also be celebrating Mass later that day at 4:00pm in the chapel. All are invited to attend.
