2-Night Retreat: Lord, that I May See! The Wonders of the Healing Powers of Jesus
March 13 @ 6:00 pm - March 15 @ 12:00 pm$295
Directed by Fr. Peter Fink, SJ
Jesus gave sight to the blind, opened ears for the deaf, cured the leper, raised the cripple and stopped the blood-flow of the afflicted woman. This retreat will look contemplatively at the gospel stories of Jesus, the healer. Using your imagination, see the expectation and the fears of those who seek to be cured. Using your imagination again, see the love and compassion of Jesus as he summons forth the healing power of God.
This is a silent retreat. Retreatants are expected to maintain a sacred silence throughout the retreat, including at meals, unless otherwise noted.
