Made for Greater

Praised be Jesus Christ!

When Archbishop Jose Gomez released his Pastoral Letter, For Greater Things You Were Born, December 25, 2016, he cited our Mother Foundress and her message as of particular importance for our times. In his letter, His Excellency outlines the challenges of the secular culture and living our faith to the fullest. The letter itself is a call out to us, the daughters of Mother Luisita, to make Mother’s charism known in our Archdiocese. By forming a retreat model based off the needs addressed in this letter, Mother Luisita’s spirituality will provide the spiritual nourishment our retreatants need.

The marked difference between this retreat and our classic retreats would be an intentionally formatted sequence of conferences and supporting activities that would help retreatants encounter the Heart of Jesus. By facilitating that encounter, we lead retreatants to discover the answer to these foundational questions: Who is God? Who am I? Why did God create me? Who is this God that desires relationship with me? How can I live in the freedom of my identity in Christ? What is God’s unique plan for my life? This retreat would provide close accompaniment by the Carmelite Sisters and would be closely aligned to our anchors of Called to Greatness, Journeying Together and Healing.

All the elements of the retreat would lead retreatants through the steps to an encounter with Christ and a deeper commitment to discipleship. Retreatants would find many of the elements of retreat they would be used to if they have come on retreat with us before, including:

  • Daily Mass and access to the Sacrament of Reconciliation
  • Eucharistic Adoration
  • Other times of prayer, including the rosary
  • Times of silence
  • The hospitality and beauty of the Sacred Heart Retreat House campus

In addition, this retreat would also include:

  • Greater Carmelite Sister engagement with retreatants before and after the retreat
  • Conferences given by Sisters, as well as a priest chaplain
  • Opportunities for individual conferences with Sisters
