At this breakfast gathering, Hide and Seek with God: Finding and Being Found, Father Lally will focus on the vital importance of the interior life of deep prayer as this EXPERIENCE in prayer sheds light on our everyday living. Of special importance is the place of ego consciousness in the developing of our spiritual awareness of being unconditionally loved by God.
