Take time this Lent to grow spiritually with the help of Father Jacques Philippe on Wednesday, March 21 at 7:00pm.  He will speak about Interior Freedom.

Despite the most difficult situations that can restrain our physical movement, each person has deep inside a place of freedom that no external power can take away, because God himself is its source. A person wins inner freedom to the extent that he connects to its source – God himself – by practicing the virtues of faith, hope, and charity. These theological virtues are the center of the spiritual life. As the basis for interior growth, they become the source of the glorious freedom of the children of God.

Fr. Jacques Philippe is a member of the Community of the Beatitudes, founded in France in 1973. Ordained in 1985 and a preacher of retreats in France and abroad, his speaking and writing focus on themes of great interest to modern Christians, including the need for prayer, peace of heart, and a correct understanding of freedom.
