Retreat: The Mystery of Iniquity: Pain and Pleasure with Fr. Basil Harnish

In this retreat participants will be introduced to a treatment of the life of pain and pleasure, especially as they pertain to the world, the flesh, and the Devil.  These conferences will explore our responses to pain and pleasure by attempting to look at our perceived successes and failures through the lens of Catholicism.  One essential consideration centers on: “Why do bad things happen to good people?”
