In Baptism, we receive the 7 gifts of the Holy Spirit and become children of God. In Confirmation, we are sealed with the Holy Spirit and are empowered to live more fully in the life of the Spirit. What happens after Confirmation? Hopefully, we continue to grow and cooperate with the gifts given to us by God. However, many of us drift away from God. We close the door of our hearts. We push away Jesus and the Holy Spirit and do not allow God to pour out His gifts into our lives. This is why the Church offers retreats.
We all need to retreat from the busyness of life to rekindle the fire of God's love in our hearts. Faith in the Fire of the Holy Spirit is designed to create an environment in which God can enter into our hearts and minds and open us up to once again allow all the gifts given in Baptism and Confirmation to be active in us. Please consider taking time away from the busyness of your life to attend this retreat. If you know someone who is in need of an encounter with the Lord, bring them with you on the retreat. All are welcome!
