In the depth of their heart many people feel a deep longing for God to shape their lives. They look for a personal contact with God that is simple, spontaneous and immediate. In this book the Author shares his experience of many years in the retreat-ministry. Step by step, in ten units, he leads the retreatant towards an immediate awareness of the reality of God, of his presence. His approach has many affinities with the spiritual traditions of India. The book can be used as a practical guide for both, a closed retreat — a time of withdrawal for silence and prayer of ten days — as well as a “retreat in everyday life”.

Daily Reflections for Lent
DateDecember 9, 2020 CategoryHomiletics
Daily Reflections for Lent "Baptism per se initiated us into a life of sanctity. Each year Lent provides us with forty days to dust off our baptismal promises and to polish our efforts at living up to the significance of this Sacrament. Seen in this light, the season of Lent is called many things: a journey, a challenge, a penance, an opportunity, the focus of all of which is supposed to move us from desert to city, from solitude to community, from temptation to dedication, and from personal accomplishment to radical trust in what only God can do. Thus Lent comes through as a totally immersive environment which we enter body and soul, and each year find this space of forty days a different experience. This book is a timely guide to showing us how this can be.
