Welcome to the DENA Advent Retreat

God becomes human in the sacred act of the Incarnation.

From the moment of Mary’s “yes” the human child begins to grow within her and there is a moment–a single moment–when the heartbeat of God becomes flesh and enters into time and space.

Pause for a moment and imagine…

A sacred spark.
The first beat of the infant’s heart.
A human electrical pulse of flesh and spirit,
then God takes on flesh and dwells among us.

Miraculous! 

As Lasallians we pray, “Live Jesus in our hearts…forever.” During this season of Advent you are invited to consider how Jesus lives in your heart. Do we allow our hearts to beat as one with Jesus? Do we open our heart to the “deep touch” of God? (LR4) How are we called to be the “heart of Christ” in the world today? Join us on this Advent journey inspired by Lasallian spirituality.

Peace,

#LasallianAdvent


Everyone, in their unique personal histories and contexts, is engaged in a life-long, formative journey. One’s experiences and encounters help to give meaning to life and ministry and facilitate one’s ongoing human development. These formative experiences and encounters unfold dynamically, in response to each person’s internal and external realities. Self-knowledge and personal acceptance are increasingly significant elements in a formative journey.”
— Handbook for Formation: A Pilgrim’s Journey

Four Weeks of Advent

These weeks provide a sacred time in which we are invited to be present and mindful to the promptings of the Holy Spirit in our lives as we prepare to celebrate the holy feast of Christmas. Advent beckons us to cultivate and deepen the sense of remembering that we are in the holy presence of God, that as disciples of Jesus Christ we are to work to bring about the reign of God, we are to be people of mercy and justice and that we must respond to the call of God in our life and be vigilante in our hope-filled actions.

“Jesus is the smile of God. He came to reveal to us the love and goodness of our heavenly Father. We need God's smile to strip us of our false certainties, and to bring us back to enjoying simplicity and gratuitousness.” Pope Francis #LasallianAdvent @fscDENA
