Everything we do at the Avila Foundation is intended to lead you deeper into relationship with the Lord—it is the reason we’re here. So when the team came to me with an idea designed to make your Holy Week the most personally impactful and powerful yet, how could I say no?
I’m grateful for their enthusiasm and hard work, now culminating in the announcement of our first-ever live, online Lenten retreat called “Ecce Homo: Prayer and the Paschal Mystery.” This event is on a grand scale: over 50 Catholic speakers from all walks of life offering “salt and light” to take with us into the holiest week of the year.
I hope you’ll register now to join us March 30 – April 1 for “Ecce Homo.”
Find out more and receive your FREE ticket to the retreat here.
What sets this online event apart is live keynotes on each of the three days of the retreat, hearing from Bishop Andrew Cozzens, Fr. Mitch Pacwa, Dr. John Bergsma, and others, as well as hosting live Spiritual Direction Q&A sessions with Fr. Timothy Gallagher, Fr. Boniface Hicks, Fr. Donald Haggerty, and more to come.
Not only that, but join our live prayer room and allow Fr. Chris Clay to pray with and for you. It was important to us to make this retreat as interactive as possible.
Whatever your Lenten resolutions and practices, I know that joining us in these final few days before Holy Week 2023 will give you the additional strength to enter this most holy time with open hands and a surrendered heart. The graces of this time on our Church calendar are immense. But we must cultivate the receptivity to take them in and allow them to transform us, to become more like our Savior whose suffering and death sets us free and releases us to love as He did.
So will you set aside some time and come alongside Catholics from all over the world as we spend time doing the “One Thing Necessary” this holy season?
Register here and please invite your friends, family, and small groups to join us as well.
May you find His peace as you draw near to the Suffering Servant this
