Healing Our Relationships

on the Road to Jerusalem

April 12-14, 2019

Only if we have healed the hurts of past relationships, can we relate well to God, authority figures, our spouse, our children, and even ourselves. This Ignatian retreat will focus on how Jesus on the road to Palm Sunday in Jerusalem, helps us to heal our relationships with God, with those who have hurt us, and where it is difficult to love ourselves and use our gifts. Each session will end with a prayer process we can use the rest of our lives whenever we encounter difficult relationships.

The Value of Silence

Silence is not to stop talking but to start listening. It is about listening with the love of a mother awakened by hearing in the 3am silence how her baby just stirred and wants to be fed. She heard her baby stir because in the night's silence her deep love strained to give whatever her baby might desire. Silence is to give us a mother's heart saying "yes" to God's deepest desires.
