Unleashing Fire: Online Pentecost Retreat

Unleashing Fire: Unpacking the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit. A seven-day retreat with the Dominican Friars and the Sisters of Life.

And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God with boldness. Acts 4:31

Don’t let this Pentecost pass you by! The Holy Spirit has a treasury of gifts that will be poured forth into Christian hearts throughout the world. Pope Francis says that the Holy Spirit “constitutes the soul, the life blood of the Church and of every individual Christian: He is the Love of God who makes of our hearts his dwelling place and enters into communion with us. The Holy Spirit abides with us always, he is always within us, in our hearts.” But do we recognize Him there? Are we attentive to the gifts He offers?

This Pentecost, spend seven nights on a digital retreat with the Dominican Friar hosts of the podcast Godsplaining and the Sisters of Life. Each evening retreat will begin with a prayer, will feature a twenty minute conference, and conclude with a meditation or hymn. As summer begins, allow this retreat to kickstart your spiritual life. The Holy Spirit will set our hearts on fire with love! As the traditional prayer goes, “He will renew the face of the earth.”
