LENTEN SILENT RETREAT
Tuesday, March 5-Friday, March 8, 2019

During these days of silence at the monastery, the whole Church begins the sacred season of Lent. Short reflections will be offered daily with a special emphasis on the traditional Lenten practices of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. The desert silence and the Liturgies of the monastery will provide an atmosphere conducive to deep reflection. This is a wonderful opportunity to make our Lenten pilgrimage more fruitful this year.

Presenter: Monks of Valyermo
Room, board, and tuition: $330 single; $287.50 each shared

TALLER CUARESMAL EN ESPAÑOL
Domingo, 10 de Marzo, 2019, 9:00a.m.-3:30p.m.

La Cuaresma es el tiempo litúrgico de conversión, que marca la Iglesia para prepararnos a la gran fiesta de la Pascua. Es tiempo para arrepentirnos de nuestros pecados y de cambiar algo dentro nosotros para ser mejores y poder vivir más cerca de Cristo. En la Cuaresma, Cristo nos invita a cambiar de vida. La Iglesia nos invita a vivir la Cuaresma como un camino hacia Jesuscristo, escuchando la Palabra de Dios, orando, compartiendo con el prójimo y haciendo obras buenas. Nos invita a vivir una serie de actitudes cristianas que nos ayudan a parecernos más a Jesuscristo. Durante este taller examinaremos nuestras vidas haciendonos tres preguntas fundamentales: 1. ¿A qué tengo que morir? 2. ¿A qué tengo que darle vida nueva? 3. ¿A qué tengo que resucitar?

WOULD I HAVE RECOGNIZED HIM? The Gospel According to Mark
Saturday, March 16, 2019, 9:00a.m.-3:30p.m.

In Mark, again and again the question pops up: "Who is this man?" and later "What does his title mean?" Mark's gospel is structured like a diptych. We will look at that structure. The total 'layout' of Mark can be a guide for us and if we don't get it, we are in good company. The disciples struggled as well and Mark suggests that they didn't get it until after they experienced his resurrection.
