2020 Communion and Liberation Priest Retreat

Only one thing I long, to live in the house of the Lord

 April 13-17 Franciscan Renewal Center, Scottsdale, AZ

To be good priests, you first of all have to be men, to feel what men feel. Live the relationship with everything that becomes present. Live the truth of your humanity. Cry because you need to cry - or you are afraid, because the problem is difficult and you feel the inadequacy of your strength. Be human; live your humanity as an aspiration, as a sensitivity to the problems, as a risk to face, as a faithfulness to what God makes urgent in your soul. In this way, reality will appear to your eyes in a true way.

Each year we gather during the Octave of Easter to spend some time with the Risen Lord in and through our companionship with one another. We are going to reflect on the priesthood as essential to the church's proclamation of the Gospel in today's culture. We will gather at the Franciscan Renewal Center in Scottsdale, AZ (www.casameetings.org). The retreat will start with dinner on Monday, April 13, and end with lunch on Friday, April 17. The price of the retreat is $475 per person. For all inquires contact Olivetta Danese at priests@humanadventurecorp.org or 914-548-1275.
