John the XXIII.
Fruitful 'first' on many fronts.
Both leaders of the Catholic Church led with courage, collaboration, collegiality, and, all the messy stuff that comes with consensus building, and more.
Saint Mary's Retreat House (www.stmarysretreathouse.org to download registration form) in Oxford, MI., presents a weekend spiritual retreat November 22-24, 2013. It will be about them.
It will be about why the world is fascinated with them, their personal and public lives, their prayer, preaching papal retreats, vision and holiness of life.
Men and women will explore their teachings on Jesus, and more, in light of the faith of participants.
Join me as I lead this retreat.
With enthusiasm I look forward to be with you and the wisdom of these popes.
