Enter into Advent by sharing this journey of hope, by means of daily prayer and weekly group reflections. The first week offers the opportunity to pray the Daily Examen, deepening our conscious contact with God on a daily basis. The remaining weeks offer specific meditations on Scripture passages in dialog with current realities. Models of Christian hope will be discussed during weekly Zoom group meetings . Suggested prayer offerings will invite the retreatants to explore many manifestations of HOPE in the midst of hardship and injustice. The final days of the retreat will offer the opportunity to contemplate the Incarnation.
Participants commit to praying 30-45 minutes each day throughout the retreat, and to gather virtually as a group weekly for sharing and prayer suggestions.
