Retreats at Teopoli

 

A spiritual retreat is always a personal experience of mind, body, and soul. It is a withdrawal from ordinary activities for a specific period of time, usually in a solitary place. This time is spent in a variety of spiritual exercises, such as, prayer, penance, reflection, self-evaluation, and discernment.

A spiritual retreat is always aimed at determining one’s state of mind and soul, seeking guidance from the Holy Spirit in all that pertains to one’s spiritual growth and personal relationship with God and others.

WHO SHOULD TAKE PART IN A SPIRITUAL RETREAT?
Everyone who is aware of the importance of living a virtuous life and the necessity of avoiding evil can benefit from a spiritual retreat. The retreat experience assists the individual in the building of a solid knowledge and love of one’s faith, spiritual life, and a sincere relationship with God. This kind of experience is especially desirable for those who are younger and in the process of building a good moral character and determining their vocation in life.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO TAKE PART IN A SPIRITUAL RETREAT?
A Spiritual Retreat offers us as Catholics an experience enabling us to keep awake and vigilant, strong and informed as to the Truth we must follow and the virtues we must practice to fulfill the words of Jesus, “Be perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect.”

To fulfill our vocation as Catholics, it is imperative that we find places and voices that can help us to regain our composure and our tranquility, our peace and our balance so as to avoid falling victim to the secularizing forces that are at work all around us. Our everyday living is filled with all kinds of stresses, different and at times contradictory ideas and values, and a reduced emphasis on Christian morals and spiritual values. We are surrounded by powerful and seductive campaigns intended to win our attention and our allegiance.

A spiritual retreat can help us to become more informed about our Catholic Faith and make us stronger in the ability to present it to those who would challenge it.
