Michael Laratonda, FMS – Presenter
This silent guided retreat will focus on two themes – intertwined: The ‘reality/ies of Grace’ and ‘film as both art and parable’. Together we will reflect on the various aspects of ‘real grace’ As experienced in our concrete daily lives – our own ‘’lived stories’ alive with Grace. Morning presentations and evening film screenings will hopefully encourage us to pray with God’s movements in our lives – including through the power of the art of films as parables of Grace.
- the power of grace
- how does grace change us?
- integrating the ‘un-gracious’ experiences of life
- the ‘ascension of Grace’ in Love
- can ‘anything/everything be different’ with Grace?

Schedule will allow for quiet times of prayer, reflection, journaling, and daily Eucharist. Handouts (including focus points for each film) will be available. For anyone interested, a new option will offer discussion times centered on our prayer and film experiences. (Please bring a Bible and notebook/journal).
