Retreat Description: Benedictine monk and priest, Father Edward Mazich, will facilitate a day of reflection, discussion, and integration of insights from scriptures.  Anger sometimes is appropriate. Jesus rebuked his disciples, the Pharisees, and those in government.  Injustice and oppression drew Jesus’ ire.  Compare that to how did Jesus treat those who sinned, were cast aside, hurt him, and were ignorant?  How do we be more like Jesus?

About the Series:

Life is full of challenges. We need help with: forgiveness; compassion; kindness; and also stress; polarization; divisions; and anger.  There are no shortage of voices, methods, and ways of “hacking” our biology or our brains to help cope with many of these issues. But do any of those work for the long term?

The Saint Vincent Retreat program is offering a new series of Spiritual Wellness Days that provide insights from various disciplines and spiritualities as well as opportunities to build connections with God and others. The Spiritual Wellness Days will be offered on a quarterly basis for a full year. There are no quick fixes to life.  These wellness days and the yearly focus allows you the space and time to understand the problem and tap into the solution—the love of God.  Feel free to attend one, some, or all of these days of reflection designed to address the concerns of our day from a variety of perspectives.

People these days seem more upset than ever.  In 2024, we will meet quarterly to talk about anger from not only the psychological/spiritual perspective, but through the lens of scripture.  Anger is nothing new to this world.  How we deal with our own anger and the anger of others will be viewed through Ignatian spirituality, and from the viewpoint of the ancient monastic fathers.
