Fr. Doug Doussan/Matt Rousso

Day of Reflection
Actual Cost: $35.00
Minimum Offering: $35.00
Pope Francis in his usual inspiring, insightful and utterly practical way insists that each person is called by God to follow his or her own unique path to holiness according to the gifts that God has given. Calling the Beatitudes the Christian's "Identity Card," he says they can help us discern the Holy Spirit's movement and guidance in the depths of our heart. he makes us aware of the serious obstacles to holiness and how we need to address these. While holiness requires silence, solitude and constant prayer, it also sends us out in loving compassion and mercy to minister to poverty and injustice in our world.

Msgr. Doug Doussan is a retired priest of the Archdiocese of New Orleans. He is currently serving as Resident Chaplain of the Archdiocesan Retreat Center. He was formerly the pastor of St. Gabriel the Archangel Parish in New Orleans and St. Joseph the Worker Parish in Marrero.
