Self-Guided Lenten Retreat
The word ‘retreat’ has many definitions; perhaps the first that comes to mind for many people is that of an army fleeing from an opponent. It’s not completely different in the Church: we look at retreat as a time of ‘withdrawal’, a turning away from worldly concerns to focus on prayerful care for the spirit.
This booklet is a collection of reflections written by Jesuits missioned to serve in retreat ministries throughout the Midwest Province. As you read the reflections, have a look at the beautiful photos of landscapes and buildings. Imagine yourself in the settings of these places while you consider the message.
We invite you to consider attending a retreat at one of the locations listed below. For a list of other Lenten events and resources, click here.
