9:00 Gather for Opening prayer and lighting of the candles illuminating the Theotokos icon of Blessed Mother Mary and the baby Jesus.

We also pray for all our lay Cistercian sisters and brothers in the US and around the world.  Specially we pray for our Gethsemani monks.  Finally, we pray this month specially for these Gethsemani monks:

Br. Christian Leblanc

Fr. Andrew McAughan

Fr. Joachim Johnson

 9:10 Lectio. Our lectio piece will be led by Mary Haley.

9:50 Reading.  Our reading this month is Living Buddha, Living Christ by Thich Nhat Hahn.

10:45 Housekeeping.   Volunteer to lead lectio next month?  Report on LCG Advisory Council activity; report of 1/28/23 IALCC Anglophone Zoom meeting (any next steps?); host October LCG retreat (Gethsemani 175th Anniversary—involve the monastic community?). Select reading for April.

11:00 Update.   Share how the Holy Spirt has entered our lives as lay Cistercians since our last meeting. How goes our Lenten experience?

11:45 Closing worship and prayer.  We will pray the liturgical hour of None as with our Gethsemani monks (identical Psalms as done today at Gethsemani Abbey.)


We look forward to our continuing LCG Chicago journey at our next meeting: April 8, 2023.
