Master of Arts in Pastoral Theology
This pastoral project is about passing on the tradition of praying the Liturgy of the Hours. Passing on tradition is a basic human activity. In fact, not only we humans, but also all of creation pass on our traditions in some way. The past is continuously carried into the present and influencing the future. We live in an ecological system which is constantly renewing itself in a never-ending cycle of birthing and dying. We come from families made up of an ever-changing cast as some members die and new members are born from new unions. The cultural expression of our humanity changes. We find new ways to do the same things people have always done, to carry on the tradition of living in relationship with our world, other persons, and a divinity we view as being greater than creation itself.
