Dr. Rossi Leads Women in Prayer and Reflection
On March 9, a special Lenten meeting of the St. Juliana Society, the St. Vladimir's fellowship for future clergy wives, featured author and speaker Dr. Albert Rossi, St. Vladimir's director of Field Education. An experienced retreat leader, Dr. Rossi led the women in a mini-version of the seminars he holds in parishes around the U.S.
The women wrote answers to reflective questions such as "Tell us about a time when God spoke to you" on 3 x 5 cards, participated in a period of silence, and listened to music. "We need to choose silence, in order to hear the voice of God," emphasized Dr. Rossi. "The whole Old Testament is about the Israelites refusing to be still."
Dr. Rossi is a licensed clinical psychologist in the state of New York. He recently released a book with Ancient Faith Publishing, Becoming a Healing Presence. His podcast of the same name can be heard on Ancient Faith Radio.
