Retreat - The Essentials of the Religious Life
December 25, 1983 Evening Conference
by Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J.
Before we start the Retreat, I would like to give you some idea of what we plan to do. My plan is to make this a Retreat on "The Essentials of the Religious Life"; more specifically, it is the Retreat that the Holy Father himself wants us to make during this Holy Year of the Redemption. For some of us it will be the last Retreat we will make during a Holy Year.
The purpose of the Retreat, therefore, is to put ourselves into the context of nineteen hundred and fiftieth anniversary of Christ's Redemption. The further plan is that the sentiments that I will share with you will hopefully be shared by many others through the Institute on the Religious Life that is undertaking the task of making the Holy Father's intentions for Religious Life in our country better known and more faithfully lived up to in the years to come.
For the opening conference I suggest that we addressourselves to this subject: the message of the Vicar of Christ to the Religious of the world.
