WOMENS RETREAT –
“Therefore, brothers and sisters, we are not children of the slave woman, but of the free woman.” (Gal. 4:31).
In the Summa Theologiae, St. Thomas Aquinas provides important insights to understand the logic of the new law of Christ which restores the fallen condition of the human person. The new law contains teaching that disposes the sinful person to the grace of the Holy Spirit. It brings people into the mystery of the cross of Christ and frees them from the bondage of the flesh and the yoke of wealth, thereby guiding their actions and helping them to live according to the law of love.
“The message of the cross is complete absurdity to those who are headed for ruin, but to us who are experiencing salvation, it is the power of God.” (1 Corinthians 1:18- 19).
During 3 days of retreat, we will focus on some scripture passages to contemplate the cross of Christ as the ultimate act of hope, salvation and life for those who are overwhelmed by many issues today such as depression, fear, violence, etc.
