Discernment in Daily Life 

Wednesday, July 5 - Friday, July 9, 2017


Retreat Description: For the Christian who prays every day, "Thy will be done as earth as it is in heaven," discerning God's will is an imperative that touches all that we are and all that we seek to do in this life. This retreat does not address the larger question of one's vocation in life, but rather those everyday realities which engage all of us no matter what our vocation may be. Discernment requires attentive listening to the Spirit of God so that God;s invitation to holiness and the virtuous life may become more a reality for us. Ordinary decisions we make so impact our progress toward communion with God.


Presenter: Father Francis has been a monk of Valyermo since 1967. He earned an MA in Philosophy from Loyola-Marymount University and an MS in Theology from Mt. Angel in Oregon. He was ordained a priest in 1976. He served as the Abbey's abbot for 16 years. His special areas of ministry include spiritual direction, preaching retreats, and working with 12-step recovery groups. In addition to many responsibilities at the Abbey, he now serves as the Director of Oblates.
