0 out of 5

$190.00

Retreat Description: In multiple places in Holy Scripture we are told that we must suffer with Christ, bear one another’s burdens, and carry our cross. Moreover, the primary message of the revelation of Our Lady of Fatima, and of Lourdes, was one of reparation and penance for the sins of the world. These are difficult messages! This retreat is designed to help the spiritual pilgrim wrestle with the hard question of suffering with Christ, and even doing so joyfully.
