Towards Earthly Man: A Lent Retreat
Sat, April 1, 2017, 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM MST
Under a veneer of self-assuredness, the man of today hides a deep knowledge of his wounds, but each of us is waiting for mercy. This explains the urgent need to immerse ourselves in the history of this mercy, the only thing that enables us to look at ourselves. Looking at this history is not just a matter of remembering the past—it means entering ever more deeply into the knowledge of that Presence without which it would be impossible to look at our life.
"You shall be My special possession...dearer to Me than all other people, though all the earth is Mine.” Given the signs of this unheard-of preference, what response would be expected from those who received and experienced it?
You’re invited to the CL Lent Retreat to join the Phoenix community to discover more deeply that the problem is not the immaturity of our attempts, but whether the desire and expectant waiting for His presence are the origin of our action.
Father Gabriele from the Denver community will be leading our retreat. The day will consist of singing, talks, lunch, silent time, and Vigil Mass. Lunch will be provided. We encourage you to go to confession before the Lent retreat to best prepare your heart for the day. Bring a journal or something to take notes with.
Space is limited. Please register as soon as possible. Deadline is Sunday, March 26.
