Our Lady Of Florida Spiritual Center

Our Lady of Florida Spiritual Center is a monastery and retreat house belonging the Congregation of the Passion (C.P.) The Congregation of the Passion, or Passionists, are a religious congregation of the Catholic Church founded by St Paul of the Cross in 1725. The mission of the Passionists is to preserve and make present the message that Jesus loves us, and his passion, death, and resurrection are the ultimate sign of that love. The Passionists do this by preaching in the community, and inviting members of the community to make a retreat at their monasteries and retreat homes.

A retreat is time for God, a time for assessing our relationship with God. We spend time with the people we cherish and respect. We spend time with God. A retreat nurtures our spiritual life in an environment away from the ordinary distractions of life. In the Scriptures, we read that Jesus would simply go off and pray. Each and every one of us needs time to be alone, and a retreat provides us with this opportunity.

Organizations also need these times. We need to pause and discern where we are; where we are going; where we want to be and how we get there. A retreat provides these possibilities for any organization.
Time is our most precious commodity, yet if we just hurl ourselves along, are we really living? Taking time to assess our life honestly and without pressure will help us get more out of life and this is why Jesus came, “that we may have life and have it to its fullness.” (John 10:10) Whatever your purpose may be, we encourage you to take some time apart to focus on your relationship with God or to spend time accomplishing what you need to do.
