BEARING WITNESS TO THE HOLY
Sunday evening, February 4, 2018 to Friday afternoon, February 9, 2018
Director: Sr. Chris Koellhoffer, IHM
Sister of the Presentation Motherhouse, 2360 Carter Road, Dubuque, IA 52001-2997

To bear witness is to point by one’s very existence to the presence of the Holy among us. In this retreat, we’ll be invited to remember the great cloud of witnesses who have gone before us and to reflect on our own lives as manifesting the Holy in every day. We’ll cultivate contemplative consciousness of all that our world loves, pursues, and suffers. This guided, silent retreat will include the arts, prayer and ritual, presentation, times of stillness, sharing and imagination.

AMAZING GRACE: THE CHARISM OF ONGOING CONVERSION

All are invited to join us for this special Lenten retreat, in which we will pray and reflect on our own experience of amazing grace---the unmistakable initial encounter with God that we name our moment of conversion. We’ll consider how our embrace of the mystery of Incarnation can open us to limitless possibilities and embrace of our world, and how the practical implications of this relationship help us to choose an authentic response to the call and challenge of our Gospel way of life.

The spiritual life is the process of being transformed into the image of Christ for the sake of others. In this retreat, Fr. Albert will discuss this process of transformation and the challenge it presents to break free from the agenda of the false self. Important aspects such as one’s image of God, resisting temptations, living in the present moment, and the challenge of forgiveness will also be discussed. This retreat is loosely based upon Fr. Albert’s best-selling books and DVDs.

What might the wisdom of Francis, the 13th century follower of Christ, have to say to the questions we live with in the 21st century? What light might the writings of this “new fool for Christ” shed on the pressing issues of our lives today – as family members, community members and global citizens? How does this soldier-turned-peacemaker speak to the challenges confronting our world today? This retreat will consider some of the writings of Francis of Assisi to discover an ageless wisdom for our contemporary challenges.

How do we broaden and deepen our relationship with God “Holy Mystery?” How do we broaden and deepen our understanding of the universe story, our creation story of today? How do we see the connection and interrelation between God and the universe? This is an opportunity to connect stories of God, universe, earth, church, religion, place, people, and our sorrows. What are the threads that connect all these stories? You are invited to come and ponder all these stories as part of a bigger picture – our cosmic heritage. Wear comfortable clothing as there will be time to reflect in/with nature.
