Bouncing Back – Living in Hope
St Paul of the Cross Retreat Center
Men’s Retreat, November 5-7,2021
Women's Retreat, February 18-20, 2022
This year’s theme for the Resurrection annual retreat at St. Paul of the Cross Retreat Center is “Bouncing back by living in Hope.” The last two years have been difficult and challenging for us to live through because of the COVID-19 pandemic. In the words of Pope Francis, “the question is whether you’re going to come through this crisis and if so how?” One thing for certain is that none of us will come through it the same. Some will be better, some worse but not the same. The retreat master at St. Paul of the Cross says that Hope is a virtue – a way of being and acting that can help us come out better. People of hope know there are no quick solutions and no easy way out. I learned a long time ago that virtues take practice. Making a Catholic spiritual retreat is a precious opportunity to renew our faith, to experience the loving presence of God and to seek the wisdom necessary for good daily living.
St. Paul of the Cross Retreat Center, 23333 Schoolcraft near I-96 and Telegraph provides a sacred place of hospitality and compassion where all of us are welcome. It’s a place where we can leave our smart phones, emails, and texts behind. Instead bring a copy of the bible and a good spiritual book to read. Plan on attending daily Mass; receiving the sacrament of Reconciliation; praying the rosary; listening to some preaching; meditating on what we hear in silence; learning what Hope means to each of us individually and growing in love with Jesus and learning how to share His love with others. As Catholics we look forward to Heaven and living there for eternity with God. Why not spend a couple days getting to know each other better?
