About The Event
As the world continues to grapple with Covid-19, Pope Francis reminds us that our mission as baptised Christians is to show by our lives, and our words, that God loves everyone and never tires of anyone. How easily do we confuse our agenda with the Lord's? How easily do we mistake our intentions for God's intentions, and think that by expanding our power we are extending the boundaries of the Kingdom of God.
Let us learn from Mary as we discover what it takes to be a true disciple of Christ. May our Lady of Sorrows hold us ever close to her sword-pierced soul.
ONLINE WEBINAR SESSIONS // 8.00PM – 9.00PM
Session 1 - 07 Sep 2020 |: Listen with Jesus – The Prophecy of Simeon
Listening to good news and to people we like are very easy things to do. But when faced with the first signs of contradiction, how do we still listen with love?
Session 2 - 09 Sep 2020 |: Stay with Jesus – The Flight into Egypt
Fleeing from danger even though God is with us (Emmanuel) seems such an ironic response to life’s situation. When we cannot comprehend the paradoxes of the Christian journey, how do we continue to stay with the questions?
Session 3 - 11 Sep 2020 |: Search with Jesus – The Loss of the Child Jesus
Losing sight of our companions or being separated from them brings about a sense of anxiety in our spiritual journey. How do we search for God when we cannot find our way?
DAY OF RECOLLECTION AT MONTFORT CENTRE // 9.30AM – 6.30PM
Session 4 - 19 Sep 2020 |: Cross with Jesus
"Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves, take up their cross daily and follow me.” (Luke 9:23). No one has looked and stood more closely at the Cross than our Blessed Mother. How can I meet and stand with Christ wherever He may be? How do I hold and place Him in my life whatever comes my way?
FACILITIES @MONTFORT CENTRE:
- Day use of individual guest room
