This retreat will focus on excerpts from the works of St. Teresa of Ávila that communicate her spirit of thanksgiving and friendship with God through prayer, and how this can be an example for our prayer. The retreat will begin with St. Teresa’s conviction that “God alone suffices” and end with her call to seek friendship with God in Christ in private and communal (liturgical) prayer. We will also take prayerful time to discern God’s presence in the ordinary events of our lives, and to give thanks to God especially in light of the week that follows Canadian Thanksgiving.
