Regular Events

 

  • What is a spiritual retreat?
    The notion of withdrawing from daily occupations to approach God more privately and to pray is part of human nature. Many testimonies illustrate these "retreats" sought by men and women to have a more personal and direct meeting with God –Jesus Himself retreated to pray in preparation for the crucial times of His stay on Earth. Nowadays, as always, Christians need a few days to withdraw from the world to come closer to their Father in order to know Him and themselves better.
  • What is the purpose of a spiritual retreat?  
    Business owners try to learn whether their business is doing well or not in order to prevent bankruptcy as a result of not finding solutions for its problems. The most important "business" in people's lives is to save their soul and to go to Heaven. Thus, it is convenient –at least once a year– to take a careful look at how we are using the talents (virtues and gifts) God has given us and to try to determine –with the Holy Spirit's guidance– what we are doing well, what we are doing wrong (in order to remedy them), and what we could improve.
  • How does it work?
    Typically, these retreats start on Thursday evening and end on Sunday afternoon. During those days, in addition to praying the Rosary and participating in the Way of the Cross, participants attend meditations and lectures by priests or lecturers who discuss issues associated with the struggles faced by Christians –for example, the call to sanctity, the quest for virtues, sin, non-committed faith, and the end of life (death, judgment, reward or punishment). Looking at Jesus a role model, His teachings are discussed, including the new commandment of love, the invitation to serve as apostles, the need for poverty in order to go to Heaven, the demand to live up to our duties, the importance of prayer. Between meditations and lectures, participants have some free time to reflect on these issues
