Finding God in the Dark:

Capturing the Second Week of the
Spiritual Exercises 
(an online experience)
Begins February 8th!

What is it?

Join us for this three-week retreat series that will offer an opportunity to enter into a contemplative experience through the medium of films.  These movies will help us explore the themes of God's constant compassionate mercy and deep love for us. God's love for us remains despite our humanity and even more so when we have not experienced love or feel we have failed.

In the Second Week of the Spiritual Exercises, we enter into God’s story and God’s way of telling stories, which is always through humans. God tells his story through our stories. This interweaving of our story and God’s is done through contemplation on Gospel texts. When we contemplate, we bring our life energies into dialogue with the life energies of God, as expressed in the incidents of Scripture. From Finding God in the Dark II by John Pungente, SJ & Monty Williams, SJ.

 

How will this work?

Each person, in their own time and in the comfort of their own homes, will watch the film guided by reflective prompts. A facilitated meeting on the dates listed, will allow participants to explore the themes of the featured films through group discussion and personal sharing.

 

Where can I view the featured films?

You can watch through free and paid streaming services like YouTube, Netflix or HBO, or by renting through platforms like Amazon Prime, AppleTV+, etc.

Cost?

$25 (for all 3) or $10 for each movie
