Some women point out rightly that if it had been three wise women, they would have brought different gifts to the holy child, perhaps a blanket and some food, and they might have watched the baby so Mary could sleep. These would have been wise gifts for a cold infant in winter and an exhausted mother. But when we translate the story into our own inward journey, bringing our most precious gifts might not be so inappropriate, after all.
With cloisterseminars.org we envision a
that merges intellectual seeking and contemplative practice with monastic wisdom and hospitality.
We invite you to come along on this journey.
