THE EUCHARIST AND SOCIAL JUSTICE
Monday, May 22 – Friday, May 26, 2023
This retreat will explore how the Eucharist opens our eyes to the sufferings of this world and gives us hope to challenge the structures of injustice, confident in God’s promises. Based on the book by Margaret Scott of the Handmaids of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, we will connect seven themes from eucharistic texts which embrace a whole host of social issues around poverty and injustice. During this time of eucharistic revival, we will explore the connections between adoration and reparation, liturgy, and social ethics, rediscovering the dimension that God intended for the Eucharist: To be the life of the world.
