    Fr Paul Rout OFM

    This retreat will encourage the participants to grow in their understanding of themselves through growing in their understanding and experience of God in whose image we are all created.  The retreat will lead us along this journey using as its inspiration the profound spiritual experiences of two great saints, Francis of Assisi and his spiritual companion, Clare of Assisi.  Drawing on the renowned spiritual work of one of Francis' early followers, St  Bonaventure, we will reflect on what  Bonaventure terms the Three Books of Revelation, the Book of the Scriptures, the Book of the World and the Book of the Self.  Relating our reflections to insights of contemporary spirituality, we may begin to discern more clearly the depths of insight to be found in St Bonaventure's claim, "I know myself better in God than in my very self".

    Fr Paul Rout OFM is a priest of the Australasian Province of the Franciscan Order of Friars Minor.  He lectures in Franciscan Spirituality and Philosophy of Religion at Heythorp College, University of London, and at the Yarra Theological Union, Melbourne, Australia.  He is also engaged in pastoral parish ministry in the Catholic parish of Heston in London and gives occasional Retreats and Days of Prayer to Religious and Parish groups in various parts of the country.

    Fr Mariathas Selvaratnam, OMI

    A contemplative retreat: the emphasis of this retreat is depth silence and mind-freeing meditation. A call to consciousness. Mystics of all faith traditions, because of the similarity of the mystical experience, can unite the world, transcending all differences and separations. A way forward.

    Fr. Charles Cross CP

    This preached retreat is an extended reflection on the three "R's" of our inner life:

    • Resting
    • Remembering
    • Returning

    Fr. Charles Cross C.P. a Passionist from Co. Down sees this retreat as an opportunity to come to an awareness of some of the essential ingredients of being a disciple of Jesus.

    "For thus says the Lord, the Holy One of Israel.  Your salvation lay in conversion and tranquillity, your strength, in complete trust..." (Isaiah 30:15)

    Living Prayer

    Fr Pat Collins, CM

    In his classic book entitled Prayer Friedrich Heiler stated, “Religious persons and students of religion agree in testifying that prayer is the centre of religion, the soul of all piety. . .  Without prayer faith remains a theoretical conviction; worship is only an external and formal act; moral action is without spiritual depth; people remain at a distance from God; an abyss yawns between the finite and the Infinite.” In this retreat Fr. Pat Collins, C.M., who is the author of a number of books on prayer  will explore different aspects of the subject such as “Praying as Jesus Prayed,” “The festal shout of Praise and Thanksgiving,” “Intercession in the Spirit,” “Lectio Divina and Contemplation,” “Listening to God,” “Receiving Guidance in Prayer,”  “Prayer and Praxis” and “Praying at all Times.” There will be two talks a day, an optional Bible study, and a homily during the Eucharist. There will also be other optional activities, e.g. watching a movie.

     

    Pat Collins C.M., M.A., STL a  Vincentian, has been a teacher, missioner and lecturer. He   helped to establish the Alpha course in Ireland, is a founder member of the New Springtime Community in Dublin, and is an international speaker. He has written  a number of books on prayer, such as Prayer in Practice (Columba: Dublin, 2000); Preparing to Pray (Dublin: Columba, 2004) and Guided by God: Ordinary and Charismatic Ways of Discovering God’s Will (Luton: New Life, 2015). His latest books   Encountering Jesus: New Evangelisation in Practice;  and Prophecy: Truth for Today, Light for Tomorrow are due to be published in 2017.
