Suffering and the Love of God
Presented by Andrew J. Peach, J.D., Ph.D.

"I consider that the sufferings of this present time are nothing compared with the glory to be revealed for us"
Saint Paul, Letter to the Romans, 8:18

"No one in any era of human history has succeeded in giving a satisfying response to the problem of evil"
Cardinal Robert Sarah - The Power of Silence

There are no easy answers, but there is divine guidance.

December 7, Saturday, 8:00 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Advent Retreat
Forgiveness Makes Us Free

Fr. Glenn Evers will explore the critical importance of both receiving forgiveness and extending it to others. In doing so, we will begin to live genuinely the prayer our Lord taught us in the Our Father, "Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us." By following the pattern set by our Lord on the Cross, Jesus shows us how to live this prayer of reconciliation: to be forgiven, to forgive others, and the new life and peace that flows from true communion of persons.

And so come to enjoy the best Christmas ever this year by receiving more deeply the loving mercy our Lord has already brought into the world -- a mercy that heals our hearts and relationships and makes us truly happy by releasing us from the wounds of the past.
