Clergy today face tremendous obstacles in their ministry. Secularism is ascendant; and more Americans than ever are hostile or indifferent to religion. “None” is the country’s fastest-growing religious affiliation.

Throughout his pontificate, Pope Blessed John Paul II summoned the Church to a new evangelization. Pope Benedict XVI has echoed that call and declared 2013 to be a Year of Faith.
Step out in faith, then, and make this year the time of grace God wants it to be. Spend five days in the company of supportive fellow clergy. Listen to talks that will inspire you for future ministry. Make the most of quiet time for meditation and conversation with the Lord. Take advantage of opportunities for spiritual direction and the counsel of world-renowned scholars and guides. Live the fullness of the Church’s liturgy—while leaving the details to someone else!
Leading this year’s retreat will be Father Dave Pivonka, TOR, and theologian Dr. Scott Hahn. They will be joined by other notable speakers. The daily schedule includes Mass, opportunities for confession, eucharistic adoration, praise and worship, plus hours for quiet and fellowship.
Though the culture may resist the Gospel, it cannot prosper apart from Christ. God has entrusted to us the only lasting solution to all the world’s difficulties and every personal sorrow.
We should never be ashamed of the Gospel. It is power for personal salvation—and for the renewal of the culture. God has called us to proclaim it, preach it, embody it, and share it with a world that needs it.
For you, it must begin with the renewal of your own ministry, your own commitment, your own relationship with the Lord. Let it begin on this retreat.Article URL: http://www.salvationhistory.com/events/power_of_god/
