Just a Closer Walk with Thee: A Retreat for Sisters (Fr. Thomas A. Hillenbrand, OSB, STL)

The opening sentence of Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation reads, “The joy of the gospel fills the hearts and lives of all who encounter Jesus.” This retreat will be about what helps us to know Jesus more intimately, to love him more deeply, and to follow him more closely.
