The retreat will include three conferences on the Beatitudes; each conference will cover three different Beatitudes. First, we will reflect on the Beatitudes as a description of Jesus’ spirituality, that is, how they express his relationship with the Father, his attitude toward and treatment of others, and his paschal perspective of the cross and resurrection. Intertwined with that reflection, retreatants will be invited to embrace the spirituality of the Beatitudes as the foundation of discipleship and apply them to their own lives. With these reflections, we will consider how the Beatitudes provide us with standards for stormy seas. By living the Beatitudes, we can navigate the trials of life and keep a paschal perspective that the Lord is with us in our suffering and leading us to unsurpassable eternal joy, which is what the word beatitude means. Retreatants will be offered Scripture passages for silent individual prayer.
