MYSTERY // Belong is one of our newest studies as part of the Blessed Conversations series. This five chapter downloadable study invites women to enter more deeply into all five of the Sorrowful Mysteries.
The MYSTERY Studies can be used for personal reflection and/or group study.
Each mystery offers four sections:
1) scripture related to the mystery;
2) reflection by Sister Maria Kim Bui on that mystery;
3) questions to reflect on personally; and
4) questions for discussion.
We examine our lives mirrored in Mary’s as we ponder a different layer of our relationships in each of the five Mysteries by focusing on vocation, community, home, God, and family.
Whether your group is three women gathered in your home, or 103 gathered in an auditorium, this study is suited for Community Groups of all sizes. You can read aloud a chapter together as a group, discuss the questions, read it ahead of time and journal about it, or ponder the Scripture verses using lectio divina.
