Welcome to CSE's Busy Person's Lenten Retreat!

Life is certainly busy! Finding time to pray, let along go on retreat can seem close to impossible. But sometimes the best way to deepen your spirituality is through small day-to-day moments of prayer and repose.

Students, staff, and faculty are invited to join us for a four-day busy person's retreat Monday, March 12 through Thursday, March 15.

Each day you will meet one-on-one with a spiritual director for 30 minutes and commit to another 30 minutes of prayer on your own. Meetings will be based on your schedule. The retreat will close with a communal prayer service.

Pope Francis' Prayer for the Year of Mercy

Lord Jesus Christ,

You have taught us to be merciful like the heavenly Father,
And have told us that whoever sees you sees Him.
Show us your face and we will be saved.
Your loving gaze freed Zacchaeus and Matthew from being enslaved by money;
The adulteress and Magdalene from seeking happiness only in created things;
Made Peter weep after his betrayal,
And assured Paradise to the repentant thief.
Let us hear, as if addressed to each one of us, the words that you spoke to the Samaritan woman:
"If you knew the gift of God!"
You are the visible face of the invisible Father,
Of the God who manifests his power above all by forgiveness and mercy:
Let the Church be your visible face in the world, its Lord risen and glorified.
You willed that your ministers would also be clothed in weakness
In order that they may feel compassion for those in ignorance and error:
Let everyone who approaches them feel sought after, loved, and forgiven by God.
Send your Spirit and consecrate every one of us with its anointing,
So that the Jubilee of Mercy may be a year of grace from the Lord,
And your Church, with renewed enthusiasm, may bring good news to the poor,
Proclaim liberty to captives and the oppressed,
And restore sight to the blind.
We ask this through the intercession of Mary, Mother of Mercy,
You who live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever.
