CLARE D’AURIA OSF – Presenter
This retreat will invite us to make a pilgrimage through the holy places in Assisi significant to the conversion of Sts. Francis and Clare. Through a series of beautiful slides taken in Assisi itself, we will “visit” San Damiano. The Portiuncula, the Carceri, La Verna, and the Basilicas. During these visits, we will be encouraged to pray with our own foundational faith, experience of “amazing grace”: that unmistakable initial encounter with God that we name our moment of conversion. Reflecting on our own lives as well as on the stories of Francis and Clare portrayed in their Tavolas, we will be led to discover how our own embrace of the mystery of Incarnation—with the limits it imposes—can open us up to a horizon of limitless possibilities and to an ever widening embrace of our world.
This retreat begins at 7 PM on Saturday, August 11, 2018 and ends at 11 AM on Sunday, August 19, 2018. The cost is $475. There is a $75 non-refundable deposit.
