Are you tired of the darkness in our world?
Archbishop Smith, in his pastoral letter, Living in the Word, says, "The making known to others of what God has done for the world in Jesus Christ... is what is meant by giving witness" In reference to Acts 1:8 he adds, "The desire and ability to be witnesses to Christ is granted by the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, whom we have received in a particular way in the sacrament of Confirmation.".
In Pope Francis' Apostolic Exhortation on the Proclamation of the Gospel in Today's World he writes:
“...How I long to find the right words to stir up enthusiasm for a new chapter of evangelization full of fervour, joy, generosity, courage, boundless love and attraction! Yet I realize that no words of encouragement will be enough unless the fire of the Holy Spirit burns in our hearts.A spirit-filled evangelization is one guided by the Holy Spirit, for he is the soul of the Church called to proclaim the Gospel. Before offering some spiritual motivations and suggestions, I once more invoke the Holy Spirit. I implore him to come and renew the Church, to stir and impel her to go forth boldly to evangelize all peoples.”
The Life in the Spirit Retreat is an opportunity to be renewed and refreshed in our call as witnesses to the Gospel, and to humbly ask our Lord to stir into a flame the gifts of the Holy Spirit, with which we have been sealed.
