Blessing of Saint Francis
May the Lord bless you.
May the Lord keep you.
May He show His face to you and have mercy.
May He turn to you His countenance and give you peace.
The Lord bless you.
Things our retreatants say:
- The liturgies were inspirational and the homilies added more meaning. I’m so impressed by howdown-to-earth Father Jim and Brother Bob are as they relate to us
- The time here has been healing. Truly my spirit gives thanks to our God for this time
- The retreat conferences were excellent. So much food for thought and nourishment for the soul. Lots to take into prayer and on my daily faith walk.
- The blend of scheduled time to free time is just right. It allows me to reflect, refresh and recharge my soul to put a little bounce in my step!
While this retreat is geared primarily to all members of the Order of Franciscan Seculars, it is open to anyone who has an interest in St. Francis and Franciscan Spirituality.
The retreat will begin on Friday evening, at 7:30 p.m., and end Sunday, after brunch, which is served at 12:30 p.m.
Almighty, eternal, just and merciful God,
give to us miserable ones the grace to do for You alone
what we know You want us to do
and always to desire what pleases You.
Inwardly cleansed, interiorly enlightened,
and inflamed by the fire of the Holy Spirit,
may we be able to follow in the footprints of Your beloved Son,
our Lord Jesus Christ,
and by Your grace alone, may we make our way to You.
Most High, Who live and rule
in perfect Trinity and simple Unity,
and are glorified God almighty,
forever and ever. Amen.
