I completed it this weekend and it was time of rediscovering my relation with God. Thanks for the focus exercises and meditation on Scripture, God once again gently entered into my imagination and heart during my prayer and gave me so much! Thank you for making this possible.

It helped me encounter Jesus more clearly, more dearly and more nearly in this very important season -- his birth and the culmination of my journey in the Year of Faith.

  • This advent study has been such a blessing. I am so glad I stopped to do even though the season of Advent is over. Taking the time to soak in God's Presence during this Epiphany week has been the greatest gift. Thank you for that beautiful closing hymn - He is already here when I bid Him: "Come, Lord Jesus." Thanks be to God! (DMK, Canada)
  • I stumbled upon this wonderful gift as I was preparing for Christmas. What a gift for this wonderful season. This is usually a chaotic time, but not this year. Your quiet, gentle, reflective focus on Advent was the reason. May God bless all you do in God's name. (NB)
  • I really enjoyed the retreat. My morning routine had become a bit stale. The breathing exercise was particularly satisfying and the simple theme was nice. Thank you! (JG)
  • Thank you so much for designing and providing an advent retreat that can be experienced without physically attending it, eliminating constraints such as time and logistics, making it possible for many to partake of its incredibly life-giving and refreshing effects. What was most influential for me was the preparatory exercise that led the retreatant to knowing God's love. The retreat guide directed me to this very important truth, so that I now start my daily prayer contemplating the truth of His love for me. The retreat was a much needed sanctuary and tool for remaining focused on the true meaning of Christmas, the weekly sessions steered me to the proper attitude, making Advent a very joy-filled and Christ-centered season.
