Conversations about love are the most important ones we have as humans. In an increasingly hostile and unloving world, we need opportunities to refresh ourselves with fine wine.
St. Gaspar, the founder of the Missionaries of the Precious Blood, reflected on the Song of Songs in a series of letters he shared among the members of his fledgling society.
The Song of Songs is a spiritual treasure of the Bible, appealing to lovers of all kinds. The retreat welcomes all interested in the great conversation about love.
Exploring St. Gaspar’s reflections on the Song of Songs in the Circular Letters, we will unfold a spirituality of authentic community and the centrality of Eucharist as lived in the Sacraments of Service.
