Who We Are En Español: Iesus Caritas
The Fraternity is a brotherhood formed by five to seven priests who meet once every month for Scripture sharing, contemplative prayer before the Eucharist, and a shared review of life with ample time for some friendly conversation and fellowship, usually over a meal.
- February 6-8 Atlanta, GA: Retreat at Ignatius House
- July 17-21 Camarillo, CA: National Assembly
It is hoped that each fraternity might have a representative at the National Assembly. All priests are welcome. Fernando Tapia, the Pan American Responsible, and a priest of the Archdiocese of Santiago, Chile will direct a Day of Recollection and oversee the election of the National Responsible. St. John Seminary in Southern California offers a great setting for this relaxed triannual meeting of the National Fraternity. A registration form will be in the next newsletter.

Prayer of Abandonment
Whatever you may do, I thank you:
I am ready for all, I accept all.
Let only your will be done in me, and in all your creatures.
I wish no more than this, O Lord.
Into your hands I commend my soul;
offer it to you
with all the love of my heart,
for I love you, Lord,
and so need to give myself,
to surrender myself into your hands,
and with boundless confidence,
