Seven Days with the Gospel of Luke: A Personal Retreat
Twenty-Third Publications, 2005 - 54 pages
Luke the evangelist never met Jesus. He was never in his company. Like us, he came to discover Jesus in a different way. Seven Days with the Gospel of Luke provides for a retreat of seven days, offering suggestions for prayer reflection or meditation. The retreat is based on the spiritual dynamics found in Luke's gospel. On this retreat we want to know Jesus as Luke came to know him, to see him as Luke did. Luke was a physician who saw not only the personal ills of the people who figure in his gospel, but also the spiritual ills of the time. He saw hope come into the world in the person of Jesus. Each meditation on Luke's gospel concludes with questions for reflection, and a suggested prayer and action response to help bring the reflection to life. Father Donders' book can also serve as a study guide for those who wish to delve more deeply into the gospel of Luke. May your seven days with the gospel of Luke draw you closer to Jesus. Other books in this series include Seven Days with the Gospel of John and Seven Days with the Gospel of Mark.
