A Virtual Evening of Reflection for Adults
Who is Jesus? This can be a complicated question. Around the world, Jesus is seen as a teacher, prophet, holy man, wonder-worker, or the Son of God. Who is Jesus to you? This is an essential question for anyone on a spiritual journey with Christ. Wherever you are in your journey with Jesus, this is a retreat to reflect on His call to follow Him (for the first time or anew) and the obstacles that may keep us from freely responding to His call.
In this online retreat, Fr. James Martin, SJ responds from his personal experience and gives an Ignatian perspective on sensing and responding to God's call. Jonathan Roumie, the actor portraying Jesus in The Chosen TV series, reflects on his own personal calling and on the call of the biblical characters dramatized in the series (viewing this series is suggested prior to attending the retreat). Retreatants will be invited to reflect on who the person of Jesus is in their own life and how they are called to follow Christ.
Program Cost: $30.00
