5-Week Retreat: Listening For God: The Prayer of Imagination

St. Ignatius has been widely recognized for his ability to discern the movements of God in his life. For Ignatius and for us, the Divine is not restricted to church, Scripture, or even formal prayer. Because all of experience can mediate the discovery of the One who knows us, in this retreat we look for the invitation to that relationship through the particularities of daily living.  With the support of Ignatian spiritual exercises, Scripture and our own engaged imaginations, we seek the action of God in and through the tangible experiences of our lives. These weeks provide an opportunity for retreatants to grow in intimacy with God while discerning the implications of that growth for a person’s life.

Day of Prayer: Wisdom Was The Lord’s Delight; Playing On The Surface Of The Earth

We will look at play and prayer. “For play is a human activity that engages of necessity both soul and body.  It is the expression on an inward spiritual skill, successfully realized with the aid of physically visible gesture, audible sound and tangible matter.” (Hugo Rahner, SJ)

Evening of Prayer: We Who First Hoped In Christ; An Advent Evening of Prayer

The season of Advent annually calls us to the mindset of preparing and waiting. The readings and holy days of this second week of Advent point us to those who have prepared and waited for Christ’s incarnation in order to guide our own preparations and anticipation.  Holy Mary at the Annunciation, St. Joseph in his quiet heroism, John the Baptist preparing the way of the Lord, the shepherds, the Magi, and even San Juan Diego spreading the word of Our Lady of Guadalupe – all were among those who were ‘chosen and first hoped in Christ’ (Ephesians 1). We will direct prayerful attention to these figures to show us in prayer how we can do likewise and pray more fruitfully in this space and intention of the season.

Dates, time, and location:Tuesday, December 10
7:00-8:30 p.m.
St. Ignatius Loyola Church

Day of Prayer: The Spirituality of Imperfection

Lent, traditionally a time of repentance and renewal gives us the opportunity to notice how sin inhibits loving and living in freedom.  Selfishness, ignorance, habit or pride impede growth and intimacy. The pressure for perfection can also present a crippling challenge to accepting God’s grace and mercy.  Through exploring this “spirituality of imperfection” we will try to discover the ongoing invitation to live and love in freedom. We will look for the real places in our lives where the invitation to live and love freely is consistently offered, which will better enabling us to know and trust God’s loving kindness.

9:30 A.M. – 2:30 P.M.
Location:St. John Francis Regis Chapel, Regis University

5-Week Retreat: “We Proclaim Your Death, O Lord, And Profess Your Resurrection”

In Lent, much of the spiritual focus of Christians is directed toward the death of Jesus; thus, in the Eucharist, Catholics “proclaim” this sacrifice. But the mystery of Jesus’ death and resurrection is also “professed” and even celebrated as the hope for all who search for meaning through the sufferings and dyings in their lives.  Using meditations offered by Saint Ignatius and Scripture, this retreat will guide retreatants to look for the ways to identify with the suffering Jesus so that we might find the power and joy of the risen Christ who offers his life to us.  .
