July 15-17, Weekend Retreat: Guardians at the Doors, Discerning Hidden Blocks to the Interior Life

0 out of 5

$190.00

Retreat Description: In the Rule of Saint Benedict, Chapter VII we read “Thus therefore must one beware of evil desires, because death is stationed outside the entrance of delight. So Scripture gives command saying, ‘Go not after thy fleshly desires.’” Our soul is a temple with many doors, and we must be aware of which doors to open and which ones to close. This retreat is designed to help you discern what is blocking you from entering more deeply into the interior of your heart where God dwells in peace.
