In the third week of the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius, the pilgrim who walks the Exercises will enter a room that is filled with his own history.
‘How can I,’ we ask, ‘accompany You, You who has always accompanied me?”
No matter the preparation of the prior weeks (life), we stand on a threshold, not really ready, but the door opens, and we walk in …as we do each Lent.
This is the week of Christ’s passion and death. Lent comes on the heels of Advent, quickly it seems. We know the story of Easter, it does not change, it is we who are changed by it.
In this vulnerability, in the humility of not being able effect change we can feel as though we are falling, away what we know, away from the superficial part of ourselves and into a love that is like no other, a love that joins us all.
Come away, rest a while, reflect in the silence. Let your heart listen.
Often all that we need is to quiet and focus our heart, and to know that we too are walked with.
The retreat will start at 9.30am on Saturday 10th March, and finish at 2pm on Sunday 11th March.
