“Let what you have said be done to me” (Lk 1:38)

“If only I can touch his cloak I shall be well” (Mt 9:21)

When the Lord saw her he had compassion for her and said “Do not weep” (Lk 7:13)

“Come and see a man who has told me everything I ever did” (Jn 4:29)

Jesus said “Mary” (Jn 20:16)

For all the women who encountered Jesus, it was a life-changing experience. Although few are named, those who are played a crucial role in his ministry: as Mother, prophetess, friends and disciples. Women were also instruments of revelation and a constant support. They were beneficiaries of healing and were spoken of in parables. Jesus gave time and dignity to widows, and even described the Kingdom of God as like a woman adding leaven to flour.

Those on retreat will join these women on their journey with Christ, and also look at how so many artists have been inspired by their lives and faith.
