Upcoming Retreat - Greece

True Life in God Retreat in Loutraki, Greece
"The Mercy of God" 
5th to 10th May, 2016


Vassula Ryden and True Life in God take pleasure in inviting you to join the forthcoming retreat in Loutraki, a seaside resort in the Gulf of Corinth, in Corinthia, Greece. The theme of our retreat is "The Mercy of God".

Loutraki is located 81 kilometers west of Athens and it is well known for its vast natural springs and its therapeutic spas. This retreat, just like the previous ones in Greece, will be a wonderful experience of fellowship, as well as a spiritual uplifting.

Our program involves a visit to Ancient Corinth where under the shadow of the towering Acropolis, St. Paul preached and lived for two years. The Gentile Church he founded here in 50 AD caused him much grief and prompted him to write, at least four letters to them.

We will also visit the Monastery of Saint Gerasimos (a Great Saint that is well known in Greece for helping people who suffer from demonic influences and curses). The location of the Church offers a magnificent view to its visitors. On the west side of the monastery you can see a stone cross 13m high and inside the monastery there are many beautiful pictures of saints.

Our program also involves a visit to the slopes of Mount Geraneia, where St. Patapios monastery has stood imposingly for centuries at a location with breathtaking views. The monastery is part of a building complex, which is an extension of the ancient hermitage of the 12th century. The view and its physical and religious beauty make it a wonderful visit. Its most precious treasure is the holy relic of St. Patapios the wonderworker. Filled with fragrance and miraculous grace, he adorns and protects the holy monastery and its visitors. Crowds of pious pilgrims from all over Greece come here to venerate this saint. The relic is reverently exposed in a wooden urn, located in the depth of a natural cave, and reminds the pilgrim of the true destination of his existence.

This Retreat will take place at Hotel Poseidon Resort, a four star hotel. (http://www.poseidonresort.gr/) where the blue horizon of the Corinthian Gulf meets the beauty of the landscape. Luxury and tranquility, a warm and cordial service combined with the unique surroundings will make all your stay unforgettable.
