Dear Friend,

Father ColThe goal of this Virtual Retreat is to help you experience the mysterious love of our God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. By definition God is love. (1 John 4:7 )

The incredible relationship of these three persons is charged by love. Love is their life fully sufficient to themselves in solitary splendor. At a "moment" billions of years ago, God expanded that relationship. Incredible Love created the Cosmos with the "Big Bang". And then, in "the fullness of time",(Galatians 4:4) God shared love with us. Jesus was born in Bethlehem...

The story of Christianity is a story of God with us -- "Emmanuel" (Matthew1:23). Century after century we learn about our God and the incredible relationship with us. As a lover surprises the beloved with manifestations of that love, so our God surprises us.. Bit by bit we learn more about who God is and how God relates to us -- beyond our wildest dreams.

God proved it beyond belief on the Cross, and continues to involve us in the ongoing work of God here on earth. The retreat offers you an opportunity to deepen your love as disciples of the Lord as you ponder the mystery of God revealed in life and ministry of Jesus.

Fraternally yours
in the Passion of Jesus,

Father Col, C.P.

Day One: "Our Triune God"
