EASTER SPIRITUAL RETREAT

Share on

The Easter Spiritual Retreat for the Pastoral members at NDU took place on April 1 and 2, 2017 at the Beatitude, Gharzouz.
 
During the retreat, NDU University Chaplain General Fr. George Nassif described the Eucharist as the sacrament of the eternal testimony of God’s presence in our lives.
Fr. Nassif said, “God never abandoned us; He always walks by our side.”

For his part, NDU University Chaplain Fr. Marc Khoubbieh reflected on the importance of silence in the Liturgy, and presented a concrete way to experience a fruitful mediation adding that, “Silence is a meaningful tool that enables us to hear the voice of God.”
Fr. Khoubbieh started with a concise definition of silence and continued by explaining its impact on our lives. He also talked about the physical sufferings of Christ, and explained that through His Passion, from the Gethsemane to His crucifixion, Christ preserved a steadfast faith in God His Father, a faith that gave meaning to His sufferings.

Through a team competition, participants discovered in depth the meaning of different spiritual virtues such as “love, hope, and faith” and how these virtues reflect on daily behaviors.
 
The two-day spiritual retreat was blessed by the celebration of the Holy Eucharist and the Foot-Washing service.
