Walk with Jesus Christ in this powerful retreat.

These sublime conferences invite you to reflect upon the ineffable mystery of Christ. As you enter into a profound experience of contemplation, you will deepen your life of faith.

Your guide is award-winning retreat leader Fr. Robin Ryan. Under his guidance, you will enrich your daily life through the presence and action of Jesus. These nine conferences, available on audio or video, are carefully crafted and expertly delivered. Throughout each session, you will encounter Scripture, the wisdom of mystics, and the powerful insights of contemporary spiritual masters.

You will focus on the powerful dimensions of Jesus Christ in your life. First, you’ll look at the dynamics of Christ’s friendship and then explore His healing ministry in the Gospels. You’ll enjoy two presentations on discipleship, looking at both the call for discipleship and Christ’s teaching ministry. Next, you will look at the Eucharist, exploring the nourishment that Christ offers us in our lives. You will also look at how we are called to be agents of communion.

After exploring the notion of Christ’s priesthood in the New Testament, you will reflect on the gift of Christ’s peace. Finally, you’ll discover how the parable of the Good Samaritan provides insight into the compassionate presence of Christ in your life.

As you walk in Jesus’ footsteps, you will invigorate your spiritual life. Deepen your relationship with Christ today.

** This set was previously published under the title Gazing on the Face of Christ. It contains essentially the same content.

It was both gentle and challenging. Review by Sr. Genevieve
It was both gentle and challenging. The content was wide-ranging yet unified. It was scholarly but also user-friendly. (Posted on 4/28/2016)
Love Fr. Ryan's calm, sincere delivery style. Review by Rita
Love Fr. Ryan's calm, sincere delivery style. I've used it on mini-retreat with my RCIA class. They can easily follow content and find it thought provoking; stimulates great discussion. (Posted on 4/28/2016)
His style of teaching is very down to earth! Review by Rita
I have used Fr. Ryan 's Gazing on the face of Christ with my RCIA retreat classes and with short sessions with our Catholic elementary school teachers. His style of teaching is very down to earth, great delivery and his core message is that we are all called to holiness no matter what our station in life. (Posted on 9/4/2015)
Thank you, Fr. Ryan Review by Matt P.
Excellent retreat. Fr. Ryan's insightful and relevant guidance has helped me to understand our Lord more fully. I will listen to this retreat again and again. (Posted on 7/17/2015)
Amazing Presenter! Review by Sister Josephine
We used Father Ryan's tapes for our annual retreat and were blessed with having Father join us for the last day. All the Sisters enjoyed this experience.

Outstanding! Review by Seeker
I have purchased a number of products from Now You Know, all of them very good. But this retreat is by far the best one yet for me. Topic 6 "Christ the Source of Communion" and Topic 9 "Christ the Good Samaritan" were particularly moving and challenging. I would highly recommend Gazing on the Face of Christ for those who would like to make a retreat but who don't have the time to get away. I would love to see many more offerings from Fr. Ryan!
