"20th Annual Beach Retreat" "The Gift of Compassion"

 

“The word Compassion is derived from the Latin words pati and cum, which together mean “to suffer with”. Compassion asks us to enter into places of pain, to share in brokenness, fear, confusion, and anguish. …Compassion means full immersion in the condition of being human.” (Compassion: A Reflection on the Christian Life, p.4)

The medievalists taught us that what makes us most like Christ is our frail and fragile humanity. If we truly loved our own frail and fragile humanity, we would love the frailty of others as well. The gift of compassion draws us into the river of love that finally overflows into the immense ocean of love that is eternal life.

Our rhythm will include silence from evening prayer through morning prayer. We will enjoy time to nap, read, walk a labyrinth on the beach, (weather permitting) and time just to ‘be’ with God and each other.

Led by: Sister Caroline Smith, PhD has served as Provincial of the Sisters of Saint Mary of Namur in Buffalo, NY. She holds an MA in Theological Studies from the Jesuit School of Theology in Cambridge, a Ph. D. in Pastoral Counseling from Loyola College, Baltimore, and received additional training in Ignatian Retreats at Guelph Spirituality Center in Ontario, Canada. A licensed counselor, she has worked extensively in Jungian dream work and the integration of the spiritual and psychological.
