A Modern Man’s Journey to His Soul
At a time when the pillars of society around us are shaking; Catholic men must look again for a deeper sense of what it means to be a man of faith. Being men we look at the world through a man’s eyes. This perception colors how we think, how we feel, how we make sense out of the world around ourselves and how we relate to others and even how we relate to our creator.
During this retreat we will:
* Discuss how the life, death and resurrection of Christ impacts our humanity and our manhood.
* Explore how faith is a dynamic gift that grows and changes as we grow and change.
* Experience the invitation to the fullness of life in Christ.
* Embark on a life journey of transformation through grace.
* Envision our own deepest humanity through the eyes of Jesus’ humanity.
Through quiet reflection, prayer, Scripture, and Eucharist we will open our lives to the Spirit of God who created us to be men of faith, strength, wisdom and love.
