In the twenty centuries since the life of Jesus artists have experienced a sense of awe and wonder as they responded to Christ revealed in the Gospels.
In this retreat we’ll spend time with some of these great artists and their works, reflecting with them on the story of Jesus and its impact on our world and our lives. We’ll open ourselves to the beauty and challenge of their works and, perhaps, find ways of seeing God afresh. And we’ll reflect on ways we can prayerfully respond to these gifts with generosity of spirit “so that, with the eyes of your heart enlightened,” as Paul writes, we can experience “the immeasurable greatness of his power for us.” (Ephesians 1)
