The Beatitudes Explored

    Last week, from July 5th through the 8th our community held its annual retreat.  The director for the event was the Dominican priest, Fr. Nicholas Monco, O.P. who also blessed us with his presence and wisdom for the retreat last year.  The topic for this year was The Beatitudes.  During his sessions with us, Fr. Monco led us in an exploration of each beatitude which essentially illustrated aspects of the life of Christ for us to imitate.  Each highlighted a disposition of heart that carries with it a promise that can be experienced in this life as well as the next.  Once again, we are very grateful for Fr. Monco’s kindness, reflections and spiritual guidance in making this year’s retreat so memorable!
