Hospitality: Responding to God’s Generous Welcome to Us

From a Christian, Benedictine perspective hospitality involves far more than providing comfort for guests.  This retreat will reflect on ways in which God welcomes us, ways in which we are summoned to welcome Him, and ways in which we can make room for others and thus have our hearts expanded in the love of Christ.

Charismatic Prayer Retreat @ Saint Vincent Archabbey

Let Your Kingdom Come

At the beginning of the Acts of the Apostles, the disciples ask Jesus, “Lord, at this time are you going to restore the kingdom to Israel?” (Acts1:6). He does not directly answer the question, but tells them to go and pray, and that they will receive power from on high to be his witnesses in the world. In short, Jesus establishes the kingdom anywhere his followers, empowered by the Holy Spirit, make his presence and his Church present in the world. This is what the world needs today–outward, tangible, visible manifestations of God’s transformative and restorative power! In short, we still await God to definitively answer the prayer of Pope St. John XXIII, “Renew your wonders in this our day, as by a new Pentecost!” Amen! Come, Lord Jesus! Let Your Kingdom come!

Retreat Master: Father Shawn Matthew Anderson, O.S.B., earned a master of divinity degree from Saint Vincent Seminary in 2007 and a doctorate from Virginia Commonwealth University in pharmacology. He serves as an assistant professor of biology.

Check-in: 3 to 5:30 p.m., Leander Hall. Retreat ends at 1 p.m. Sunday.
