The loss of a loved one is difficult and painful. The loss of a spouse is a particular kind of suffering that raises questions of faith – and can, at the same time, be an opportunity for profound intimacy with Christ, and with our departed loved one.
Ann M. Koshute, MTS, will lead a day of reflection March 26 at Malvern Retreat House for those who have lost a spouse as an opportunity for spiritual reflection and refreshment. Jesus is closest to us in our suffering and grief. This day will look at who Jesus is, where he is in our suffering and how we can open our hearts and our wounds to his healing love.
Space is limited. To register for this retreat call 610-644-0400 or visit the website MalvernRetreat.com. The retreat house is located at 315 South Warren Avenue in Malvern.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
