These four evening retreats will examine the challenging social teaching of Pope Francis. That teaching includes both his official teaching and his informal teaching by his words and deeds. We will study issues of poverty, ecology, peace, migration and economic justice. Further, we will explore his key evocative phrases: “smell of the sheep,” “field hospital,” “culture of encounter” and “missionary discipleship.” How has this social teaching been received in the Church and the wider community? How are people living out this message? How can we incorporate it in our lives and our communities?
