    A Parish Retreat on the Spiriturality of Pope Francis
    (Creighton University, 2013-11-18) Alexander, Fr. Andy S.J.; Waldron, Maureen McCann
    In preparing the three nights of the retreat, it became clear to us how much of Pope Francis' message is shaped by the Gospel and the movements of the Spiritual Exercise of St. Ignatius. His message has been as challenging as it is consoling. The media has covered only a portion of Pope Francis' message. From the time we first saw Pope Francis on the balcony, asking us to pray for him, we knew he would be very special. In this retreat, we examine his words and how they help us grow in our relationship with Jesus. Each evening's presentation ends with time for invidual prayer - you can pause the recording to pray during that time. Then there are helps for praying with each theme the next day. We share these three presentations to assist us all in hearing his message and in letting his message - the message of the Gospel - become a retreat for us all. May we all grow in a sense of our God's loving mercy for us, in his call to us, and in our mission today to serve those on the margins.
