This retreat is based on Charles Peguy’s Little Girl Hope
from the book: “The Portal of the Mystery of Hope.”
Hope is both a virtue and a mystery. It is desirable yet elusive.
Many dismiss it, misunderstand it, shrug it off and turn their backs on it,
extolling faith and charity instead.
Whilst faith and charity are absolutely critical in these times of uncertainty and fear in society,
there is now a need for hope as never before since World War II.
Sr Antonia osb will be your guide in this retreat.
