The Vessel and its Gift of Colour
Some gatherings are more joyous than others and lately our Dominican gathering was a remarkably hopeful and challenging experience where our hearts expanded, giving us a greater appreciation of who we have become as Dominican Women and calling us deeper into our journey of who we are yet to become. As part of our sacred time together we included remembering those who paved the path of our present journey. In so doing we used colour to recall our companions who have faithfully returned to God. This coloured filled vessel and its layers of colour represent what came to our minds as we gave thanks for the stories, hopes, encounters, commitment, dreams and struggles of those who went before us. The colours remind us of all who journeyed the Dominican Way and who now nudge us forward in joy and courage to continue on our mission as Dominican Women in proclaiming and witnessing to the liberating Word of God. May we draw strength from all their colour.
