The Beatitudes: The Key to Peace & Healing in Challenging Times – October 22-23, 2021

Friday October 22 at 7:00 pm to Saturday October 23 at 4:00 pm

How to find peace and healing in these challenging times of pandemic, violence, and isolation as we emerge from a period of virtually zooming rather than physically hugging those who love us? For our times Jesus gave the beatitudes to transform the times of deepest suffering into times of deepest blessing and new life. In this retreat we will experience the healing process in each beatitude to create abundant life wherever we have struggled to find any life.

Facilitator: Fr. Matthew Linn, SJ has focused on integrating physical, emotional, and spiritual healing. He is a member of the Association of Christian Therapists with advanced graduate degrees in sociology, anthropology, spirituality, and theology.

Matt has written or co-written 22 books translated in over 20 languages, with over a million copies in English.
