About the Event
Booklet to Prepare for Retreat
Matthew 9: 20-22: A woman suffering hemorrhages for twelve years came up behind him and touched the tassel* on his cloak. She said to herself, “If only I can touch his cloak, I shall be cured.” Jesus turned around and saw her, and said, “Courage, daughter! Your faith has saved you.” And from that hour the woman was cured.
During this retreat like the hemorrhaging woman, we will try to touch Jesus. Fr. Louis will provide us with some spiritual insights about that passage to inspire us. He will model how to pray and prayerfully journal. In our turn grounded in the word of God, we will exercise in 5 ways to pray and 5 ways to journal.
Opportunities will be given to exercise the 5ways to pray: The Examination of Consciousness, The Lectio Divina, The Gospel Contemplation, The Practice of the Daily Examen, The Prayer of Quiet.
The journaling part will be supported by the teaching of Jeanette Lees in the video: “Janet Lees on Journaling” on Vimeo. Opportunities will be given to journal.
