THE REALITY OF THE UNSEEN: Looking at Mysticism & Religious Experience as a Gift of Being Human

Monday, June 20 – Wednesday, June 22, 2022

Live and Via Zoom

Discernment is an essential theme in the spiritual life. As we progress through our life, we constantly need to make practical decisions within the context of our values. These values are founded on our belief system, our culture, our understanding of and relationship with God. St. Benedict in his Rule is concerned that monks (actually all of us) often make decisions based on self-will or personal preference rather than on the will of God. God intends our good. God's will calls us to become our 'best' self for the good of others. Pursuing the will of God is a way of pursuing the best in life and the best in ourselves as well. This retreat will explore discernment as an ongoing process of spiritual growth toward maturity in the Spirit. 

Fr. Francis Benedict 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.
