Retreat details in our centre
The Inner healing retreats begin with the message of the everlasting love of the Father manifested through Incarnation. “God so loved the world that He gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life” (Jn 3:16). The mercy of God is being poured to each one in humanity till the last moment of their lives. Salvation in Jesus is to be experienced through a radical turning away from sin and turning to God’s Mercy in repentance. Through the reception of the sacraments of reconciliation and holy Eucharist, the retreatants are invited to experience a new vitality and spiritual vigour.
Real transformation and deliverance take place as a result of the outpouring of the Mercy of God.
We are wounded in our interior mind in various ways. The pure and endless love of God heals all wounds and soothes all the strains. Our family relationships is to be strengthened.
The charism of healing is exercised through the preaching of the Word of God and the worthy reception of the sacraments. Healing is understood not in the narrow sense of bodily well-being, but as the love of God flowing into the brokenness of man to make him whole. The leadership given by the priests in preaching and the exercise of the sacraments manifests the importance of the Sacrament of Holy Orders. There is also sessions to help the hearers to make use of the sufferings in the light of the suffering and death of Jesus Christ.
There is an inner healing session in the presence of the Eucharistic Jesus through which the Lord heals many.
The retreat ends with the fresh anointing of the Holy Spirit as experienced in the Sacrament of Confirmation. This all-transforming experience of the baptism of the Holy Spirit is the fulfillment of the promise of Jesus. This outpouring of the Holy Spirit is accepted as a special grace, to withstand the temptations of the evil one and to defend and spread the faith by word and action confessing Jesus Christ as the only savior of mankind.
