Your directors for this seven day retreat, Following Our Pilgrim Hearts, are Francis and Clare of Assisi. Both saints were determined to follow the Christ who spoke to Francis from the cross of San Damiano. Their mission to rebuild the church by living the gospel of Jesus was done with a passion rooted in their experience of God's ecstatic love. Through the chosen words of Francis and Clare, you will walk in their footsteps through Assisi and the Umbrian countryside, focusing on pilgrimage and retreat, the going forth and the going within of the soul's journey. The process is an invitation to grow in holiness as your guides did. The material allows you to choose your own pace as you move through this retreat.
