Mount St. Mary's Seminary, Emmitsburg, MD
Retreat Theme: The Many Faces of Being Called: The Joy and the Challenge of Being a Disciple of Jesus
Retreat Director: Msgr. Anthony Frontiero, S.T.D.
Jesus called people from Israel to follow him. He gathered disciples around him. The call to these disciples to follow after him and to place everything, without reserve, in the service of the reign of God must have accompanied his preaching from the very beginning. Jesus stands for a perpetual revolution in the life of love and truth, because he insists that all people, no matter who they are or what they have done, are invited to become children of God. Sacred Scripture is so shocking, because it reveals that the scope of Jesus' call to us, and of his healing and reconciling ways, extends to every square inch of the universe. There is no place or time, no area of our lives, where God's love does not seek to go. Indeed, the love of God revealed in the life of Jesus Christ explodes all the avenues we so often employ to avoid allowing the call of Christ to truly transform us. Come to this year's John Carroll Day of Recollection and rediscover, or discover for the first time, how the Lord may be calling you to be his friend, his disciple; and how you might respond to that call with a more authentic and generous heart.
