Summary: Touching empathy has long been understood as an absolutely essential component of giving, being and sustaining life. Take the opportunity during this Lenten Day of Prayer to reflect on “The Life-giving Power of Touch: Ours and God’s.” Participants will be invited to consider the roles we play when we touch others and when we allow them to touch us in any number of ways, including as gentle nurse, teacher-learner, principals/administrators, hospice vigil-sitter, caregiver of family or friends, social worker-embracer of the poor, washers of bodies, artists and all custodians of imaginations, musician-music makers, poets-prophets-all seekers of truth and all smithies of words, jokers-jesters-mirthers and all those who help us smile, and ALL God’s hands.
Facilitator: Tom White is a lifelong Catholic and a parishioner of Holy Family Catholic Parish in Kansas City, Mo., where he is a member of the choir, lector and Eucharistic minister. He is also an advocate to the Diocesan Marriage Tribunal and was parish facilitator for the Jubilee Year of Mercy. Tom has a master’s in theology and is former diocesan priest.
