The Light Shines –Indeed there will be Light.

“I cannot tell you how the light comes, but that it does. That it will.”

- Jan Richardson

Poet and philosopher John O’Donohue writes, “And when we come to search for God, let us first be robed in night, put on the mind of morning to feel the rush of light”.   We know all too well that the journey we make in life is often clouded by darkness and we struggle at times to recognize the light.  The invitation of retreat is to hold the two in balance, the light and dark, consolation and desolation and in it all find that we are not only recipients of such gifts of light but that we are called to be light to others.  Our lives, our stories and hearts illuminate; this guided retreat will be a time for leaning then into that light.

Begins with supper at 6:00pm on Thursday and concludes with lunch at noon on Wednesday. Cost $555.  Deposit $150. Balance due 10 days prior to start of retreat.

Leader: Terrence Devino, SJ

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
