ISI Presents: Montserrat Mornings of Renewal

Register NOW! here

ISI is delighted to present the Montserrat Mornings of Renewal in 2020. Our theme is Vision and we have gathered persons with long experience in Ignatian spirituality, deep insight, and dynamic presentation styles to invite, cajole, comfort, and challenge us to explore ways of living our life of faith, hope, and love. 

All adults are welcome at every Morning of Renewal. The mornings are offered in the Loyola Room (second floor) in Campion Hall at Montserrat Jesuit Retreat House. The morning begins at 9:00 a.m. and concludes with the celebration of Mass at 11:30 a.m. There is no set cost of the mornings, but we do accept offerings to help defray facility and materials expenses. It is helpful to our planning if you let us know you are coming. You can register here. 

Join us Saturay March 7 for  Seeing Christ in Need with Fr. Anthony Borrow, S.J. Here is a decription of our theme:

Jesus looked with pity upon those who were in need. We are invited to cultivate an ever greater awareness of the needs of those around us. As Jesus opens our eyes and hearts to see their needs and to hear the cry of the poor, we will seek ways to respond with ever greater generosity and creativity to those needs. Jesus draws so incredibly close to those who are in need that He ultimately embraces a way of life that leads to His being rejected. Jesus reminds us that whatever we do for the least among us, we do for Him. What prevents us from seeing Christ in need? How will you respond when you see Jesus hungry, naked, lonely or afraid? 

Presenter and Mass Celebrant:

Sábado de renovación
14 de marzo de 2020
9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Esto día de renovación, presentada en español, ayudan a los participantes a profundizar la experiencia de nuestra fe católica ofreciendo un día que incluye conferencias de oración, tiempo para la oración personal en silencio, tiempo para compartir, y se cierra con la celebración de la Eucaristía. 

La visión: MAS o MAGIS

Después de aceptar que somos amados, lo que queda es el don de la “libertad” que es un don para que ese amor sea auténtico. Dios no me obliga, Dios no me impone, Dios acepto el riesgo de darme libertad cuando me creo. Se trata de tomar las decisiones que me lleven a El, que me acerquen al fin para el que fui creado. Esas decisiones deberán ser las mejores. Más/Magis en todo y hacia donde Dios quiera. Para San Ignacio es el horizonte hacia el que caminar sin dudas: todo ha de hacerse “para la mayor gloria de Dios” (AMDG). La vida entera de San Ignacio fué la búsqueda de un peregrino hacia este MAGIS, la siempre mayor gloria de Dios, el siempre más cabal servicio de nuestro prójimo, el bien más universal, los medios apostólicos más efectivos.
