Paraclete Press are hosting a two-hour online Lenten retreat with Fr Ron Rolheiser OMI.

The retreat “The Passion of the Cross – Revealing Secrets Hidden Since the Beginning of Time” will be held on Friday 5 March from 1pm to 3pm US Eastern time (Saturday 6 March from 5am to 7am AEDT) and is $US50 per person.

About the Retreat

At the heart of our faith lies the mystery of Jesus’ Passion and death on a cross. It is not so much that we misunderstand this mystery but rather that we do not probe deeply enough into its richness. What are the deep “secrets” and “truths” revealed in the passion and death of Jesus? How are we saved through this mystery? How does the “Lamb of God” take away the sins of the world and wash us clean with his blood? A reflection on the paschal mystery.
