Contemplative Retreats with Fr Greg Wiest, CSsR

The heart of contemplative retreats is to truly follow Christ from the depths of our lives. In order to live fully in Christ (The life I live now not I, but Christ who lives in me, Gal. 2:20), we must also listen through deep meditation.

What we have seen and heard we proclaim now to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; for our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. 1 Jn 1:3-4

To truly follow Christ from the depths of our lives we must also listen through deep meditation
