Byzantine Monastic Vocation Experience for Men

Posted on July 20, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Entitled ‘You Have Seduced Me O Lord,’

it’s open to all young adult single men interested in religious-monastic vocation and Byzantine spirituality. It will be a marvelous opportunity to meet our Order (Basilian Monks), the Oriental spirituality, to reflect on God’s call and to breathe in the Church with both lungs (western & oriental). This monastic vocation experience will include moments of Liturgical Prayer in the Byzantine Rite, Meditations on Oriental Spirituality of Byzantium, and moments of reflection, fraternity and sharing. Readings and community discussions will be based on texts from Holy Scripture, and the Holy Greek Fathers of the Oriental Church. It will be a period of Graces in which each of the participants can really discern whether our Lord Jesus Christ is calling him to follow Him with charitable soul and pure heart. God Calls You. The Church Needs You. Come Join Us! Event dates:August 18-26, 2008. Those who would like can stay on with us after the retreat for up to 20 days (until 20 September) will be able to stay directly with the Monks in the Abbey, following the monastic schedule and way of life of the Basilian Community of Grottaferrata.Deadline for registration: August 5, 2008 by: Basilian Monks, Exarchic Greek Abbey of St. Mary of Grottaferrata Contact: Father Antonio, O.S.B.M.Email: segreteria@abbaziagreca.itAddress: Corso del Popolo, 128, i-00046 Grottaferrata (Rome), ItalyPhone: 0039-06-945-93-09
