Encounter the power of the Holy Spirit in this life-giving retreat.

How does the Holy Spirit make a difference in the Church, the world, and your own life? Far too often, people overlook the influence of the Spirit. And yet according to Church teaching, the Spirit is equal to the Father and the Son, playing a fundamental role in the Scriptures and life of Jesus.

In The Spirit of Life: A Catholic Retreat with the Holy Spirit, you will awaken a deeper appreciation and greater awareness of the third Person of the Trinity. As you move through these retreat conferences, you will watch the workings of the Holy Spirit unfold in ever expanding ways.

You will begin with the divine indwelling of the Spirit in your own life and soul before exploring how He works through Word, sacrament, and the charismatic gifts. As you will see, the Spirit is also present outside the visible Body of Christ in other religious traditions, and lies at the heart of the cosmos. To this end, you will explore how the Holy Spirit, who spoke through the prophets and sages of the Old Testament, later breathed life into the early Christian communities, and is still alive in the world today.

These powerful retreat conferences will bring alive the gift of love in your own heart. Become a channel of the Holy Spirit in the world today.

Praise for Donald Goergen 
“The finest professor with whom I have had the privilege to study, Don’s style is at once captivating and endearing.” – Fr. Raymond-Marie Bryce, O.P., Associate Pastor, Indiana University
 Fr. Goergen is a contemplative person, very much in tune with contemporary spirituality. He has carried many administrative responsibilities with steady competence. He possesses the Midwestern virtues of hard work and sober judgment, along with a ready humor.” – Benedict T. Viviano, O.P., biblical scholar
“Few have Fr. Don Goergen’s understanding of the elusive depths of Dominican spirituality. His living of our Dominican life shines through his body of published work on the Holy Spirit as well as his down to earth recorded lectures and retreats on Chardin and our own Eckhart.” – Mr. Joseph J. Komadina, O.P.
“Father Don Goergen, O.P., is a master of the spiritual life. He has not only studied Christian spirituality for many years but has put into practice in his adult life all of those key elements which enable one to grow in holiness…. Let Don show you with the way with his wisdom and insights.” – Father Harry Byrne, O.P., Professor Emeritus, Aquinas Institute of Theology
“Studying Christology with Donald Goergen, OP almost two decades ago forever changed my understanding of Jesus of Nazareth, and continues to shape my prayer and preaching to this day.  I am thrilled that Don’s research and insight will now be available to a wider audience.”
– Ann M. Garrido, Associate Professor of Homiletics, Aquinas Institute of Theology
“Don Goergen has spent his life meditating on the meaning of Jesus and his mission… His work, whether spoken or written, is always holistic: intellectually satisfying, strengthening the heart, socially and pastorally sensitive.” – Vivian Boland OP, socius to the Master of the Order of Preachers

    Fr. Goergen made the Holy Spirit come alive for me.

    Fr. Goergen made the Holy Spirit come alive for me. His obvious enthusiasm for his subject and faith rang through in each conference. His friendly voice and sense of humour made me feel as if I was in the same room with him having a discussion over coffee.
