In the Redemptorist Region of Zimbabwe, we were blessed to have Fr Mark Miller, C.Ss.R the provincial Superior of Redemptorists in Canada. He gave us a wonderful retreat from the thirtieth of July to the third of August 2018. The retreat came at a very difficult time as we were having the country’s general elections on the opening day of the retreat! However, in spite of this challenge Fr Miller provided a wonderful atmosphere of prayer and introspection. In fact, the retreat become a form of healing for the confreres in Zimbabwe in the midst of a complex political situation.
On the first two days Fr Miller took us through the Holy Trinity and in the remaining days he touched on St Alphonsus and prayer, discipleship and the religious vows. He seized the opportunity during the daily masses to draw lessons on various aspects of our community life. The retreat concluded with the feast of St Alphonsus on the afternoon of the third of August 2018.
Fr Miller will conclude the week, the eight to the tenth of August giving a seminar in Moral Theology at a theologate co-founded by the Redemptorists. Hundreds are expected to gather at this much anticipated event.
