Our understanding of God changes with the circumstances of our lives.  In the scriptures, individuals had strong and varied experiences of God and they formed their own personal images of God.  Studying the life of St. Francis gives us particularly good insights into how God is experienced according to our needs.  in this retreat, Fr. Quigley presents diverse images of God throughout scripture, the life of St. Francis, and current events.  Question for reflection during the retreat: What have been your images of God?  Includes daily Eucharist.
