Rivers of Living Water
The retreat will focus on the image of water as a symbol of how God acts in and through our human life. Guided by the Blessing for Baptismal Water, Retreatants will be invited to ponder:
- the life-giving power of water (Creation);
- the purifying/healing power of water (Noah);
- the liberating power of water (The Exodus);
- and finally the person of Jesus from whom “rivers of life-giving, healing, liberating waters” flow.
Each of these topics is developed in a Motivation given by a member of the retreat team and is followed by a period of extended personal prayer. Please click here for more information and retreat dates.
