Retreat Reflections - Montserrat

from a weekend retreat given at the Montserrat Jesuit Retreat House in Dallas, Texas – December 2009

Jesus Christ: The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone

Gil Bailie shows how Jesus Christ’s crucifixion, death, and resurrection form the center of all human history. His thought helps us grasp the great mystery of the Sacrifice of the Mass and as well the everyday experiences of resentment, revenge, and forgiveness.

These retreat reflections illumine our need for the seven Sacraments and for a theology of the body, “Male and female, He created them.” It offers the Catholic alternative to the culture of death: the culture of life. To explore how the Roman Catholic faith illumines current experience, Bailie draws on the theology of Benedict XVI, Hans Urs von Balthasar, Henri de Lubac, and St. John Paul II, and on the anthropological work of René Girard.
