Grief, suffering, and sorrow, they seem to be all around us. How does carrying our crosses unite us with Christ's suffering and bring us closer to Him? How do we handle it the way Christ intended? What does it all mean?
Msgr. Morris is a talented speaker who will bring the Truth of Christ and the wisdom of the Saints to these profound questions. This retreat will enlighten our minds and provide the strength we all need to embrace the cross and follow Jesus in our world today.
