Guided Contemplative Silent Retreat
August 5 - 11, 2019
Arrive 3:00 pm Monday—Depart 1:00 p.m. Sunday
Theme: “The Hound of Heaven”
The classic poem by Francis Thompson elaborates on 1 John 4:10 the foundation of our discipleship. God loves us first and passionately. Our brokenness makes us all the more enticing. We will let our Beloved polish our self-acceptance. Hopefully, Jesus will clarify how he hugs our heart through our own style of prayer. Then we will see if the monastic tradition of Lectio Divina can open us further to the gift of contemplative union.
Presenter: Fr. John G Yockey
