An Ignatian, Silent Weekend Retreat for Men
We find the movement, the presence of God in our ordinary day-to-day lives. Our relationships, jobs, worries, anxieties, hurts, joys, solitudes, all form the canvas in which God moves. Ignatian Contemplation encourages the use of our five senses to actively taste, touch, smell, hear and see God. In this retreat, we will make use of Ignatian contemplation to come to know God/Jesus/Spirit in the concrete experience of our life. During this retreat we will make use of our senses. We want to seek to know the smell of God, the taste of the Spirit, the glance of Jesus, the sound and taste of God's movement, experiencing God's care and perspective on our lives!
Groups Attending: Individuals, Sts. Faith, Hope and Charity (Wilmette), Sts Joseph and Xavier (Wilmette)
