Imagine…making your way out to a Hermitage in the countryside. Space is created, you enter and enjoy it fully. Imagine the quiet and simple beauty of a place offered to you for retreat and renewal. There you become acquainted with a generous host and facilitator, we’ll call him father Richard. As your guide and friend through the Lenten season, he offers practices to help you deepen your connection with God and with yourself. He offers insights from his experience…evoking your cherished passions, inspiring new visions. You can open the Scriptures, be acquainted with the mystics, recapture a sense of enchantment with your own humanity, embrace paradox, reenter the Mystery of Love Incarnate, experience Communion. Your longing to blossom as a singular and beautiful creation, your desire to live as Christ — can meet. You can be found already home even as your step-by-step pilgrimage continues.
