This retreat offers the chance to explore the spirituality of the Sacrament through the writings of Hildegard of Bingen, Catherine of Siena, Teresa of Avila, John Paul II, Benedict XVI and Francis among others. The Sacrament provides an opportunity to discover more about ourselves, acknowledging both our need and capacity for conversion and God's invitation to recognize the depth of God's love and mercy.
