From June 8-15, 2018, Fr. Cristino had the distinct privilege of preaching the annual 8 day retreat to the sisters of the Carmelites of the Divine Heart of Jesus in Mississauga, ON. Several of these sisters ran a home for the aged in Father’s hometown of Medicine Hat and have known him since he was a child. For the six full days of retreat, Fr. Cristino gave two daily conferences, one reflecting upon a principle of Carmelite Spirituality, and the other upon a treasured Carmelite image or symbol. While this retreat was geared specifically towards Carmelite Women Religious, many of the themes should be applicable to all for advancement in the interior life.
Day 3: Conference 1: Contemplation
Day 3: Conference 2: ‘The Mendicant’
