Marianist Brother Tom Redmond is a staff member at NACMS. He has been working for the past several years to adapt the Spirit of Saragossa Retreat--which has traditionally been a 30 day retreat centered on Marianist spirituality, Mary, and the Founders--into a retreat that people can do in their daily life. A major component of the retreat is meeting with a spiritual director. In this podcast, Patti Gehred talks to Bro. Tom about spiritual direction. What is it? Why is it important? How is it different from counseling or confession? Throughout the course of the interview, Brother Tom shares insights into how we can respond to God's invitation to growth and deeper relationship.

 The Spirit of Saragossa Retreat in Daily Life was originally designed as a 30-day directed retreat for Marianist brothers and sisters preparing for perpetual vows.This 30-day retreat was developed in 2008 by an international team of Marianist brothers, sisters, and priests; since then, many Marianist religious from around the world have experienced it. However, few religious and lay Marianists have been able to experience its richness due to the retreat's length. As a result, we have adapted the Spirit of Saragossa Retreat to be a "Retreat in Daily Life," which allows people to experience the retreat who otherwise would be unable to do a 30-day retreat.
