    New Wine in New Wineskins: Krisis or Kairos?
    - The Challenges of Being A Religious in the 21st century under the Leadership of Pope Francis

    In January 2017, Rome’s Congregation for Religious published a new Document entitled New Wine in New Wineskins - The Consecrated Life and its ongoing Challenges since Vatican II - we will unpack and develop further several issues form this document during this retreat.

    Pope Francis offers us his own pastoral style and leadership. We will explore in some depth the “Francis Effect”  It would be an understatement to say that the Catholic Church is going through a crisis at the moment. But is this point of time also a Kairos moment of grace for us?

    Fr. Eamonn Mulcahy is a Spiritan or Holy Ghost Father Missionary originally from Manchester. A priest since 1980, he has extensive missionary experience, working with young adults, teaching theology and giving retreats. From 2006-2013 Fr. Eamonn lectured in Systematic Theology at Tangaza University College, Nairobi, Kenya and at the same time was heavily involved in education projects in the infamous slum of Kibera in that same city. Back in Manchester as Parish Priest in the inner city since 2013, he was recently appointed Episcopal Vicar for Religious in his home diocese of Salford. Since September of last year Fr. Eamonn gives weekly lectures at Oscott College, the Inter-Diocesan Seminary near Birmingham.

    This “Kit Sheet’ provides some guidance on the creative side of a fabric arts/textile retreats. A major emphasis is on experimenting with new techniques, ideas and ways of approaching the work, bringing what individuals have, however much or little, and sharing materials, ideas, fellowship and prayer. The other emphasis is on openness of mind - it doesn’t matter how experienced or inexperienced anyone is on a retreat, if they come with a willingness to explore the possibilities that a wide range of textile arts can offer in deepening their journey with God.

    The days will follow the general pattern as set out on the CARM website

    The chaplain and retreat leader will work together so the worship and prayer/meditation element reflects the creative themes that have been chosen. Participants will be encouraged to develop their own interpretations of the theme, with guidance and encouragement, which, we believe, allows God to work in each person individually.

    CARM is Christian and ecumenical. People of any religion or none are welcome to attend. Worship during retreats is open, inclusive and rooted in Christian traditions.

    “Be transformed by a spiritual revolution so that you can put on your new self” (Ephesians 4.23):
    Spiritual transformation through the gifts of the Spirit.

    This retreat will lead us on a journey in which we shall contemplate the transforming power that is granted us when we open our hearts to accept the gifts given to us by the Holy Spirit.  Our guides for this journey will be the great 13th Century Franciscan spiritual writer St Bonaventure and our present Pope, Pope Francis.  The retreat will focus upon each of the seven gifts of the Spirit, exploring their foundations in the Scriptures and their practical applications as found in the reflections of our two spiritual guides.

    Fr Paul Rout OFM is a priest of the Australasian Province of the Franciscan Order of Friars Minor.  He has a teaching background in Franciscan Spirituality and Philosophy of Religion at Heythrop College, University of London, at the Yarra Theological Union, Melbourne, Australia and in Adult Faith Formation programmes in the Westminster Diocese.  He is also engaged in pastoral parish ministry in the Catholic parish of Heston in London, and gives Retreats and Days of Prayer to Religious and Parish groups in various parts of the country.

    Becoming Who We Are

    Only by becoming identified with God can we become our own deepest and truest selves, and only if we find our true selves can we find God. The two go together, and the path to both is along the path of virtue. A virtue is an habitual and firm disposition to do the good. Thomas Merton said in “New Seeds of Contemplation” (New Directions 1972) page 35: "Ultimately the only way I can be myself is to become identified with Him in whom is hidden the reason and the fulfilment of my existence. There  is only one problem on which all my existence, my peace and my happiness depend: to discover myself in discovering God. If I find Him I will find myself and if I find myself I will find Him” 

    Fr. Charles Cross C.P. a Passionist from Co. Down.
