The Cloud of Witnesses: The Communion of Saints & Life in the Body of Christ   

Friday, September 1 - Sunday, September 3, 2017

 

Retreat Description: The saints of every age are friends of God and the witness of their lives of faith inspire those on the pilgrimage of faith today. The prayers of the Liturgy remind us that we are assisted by their prayers and count on them. Therefore, it is possible to have a living relationship with the saints. We are in communion with them in Christ. Their words of wisdom give us courage. They can consciously become part of the community of our friends in the family of faith.

 

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.
