This study attempts to develop a contemplative model retreat based on the works/spirituality of St. John of the Cross in order to strengthen the faith of the consecrated persons in the Catholic Church, specifically in Kerala, India. In the past, consecrated persons in Kerala were examples of faith and moral life, and embodiments of selfless service to the society. They were well accepted, appreciated, and respected by the Indian society because of their Christ-centered life and holiness. But today the credibility and authenticity of the consecrated are questioned because of land and financial scams, sexual abuses, disobedience, and disharmony amongst them. It is in this context that with this study, the author attempts to develop a contemplative model retreat for the consecrated based on the works/spirituality of St. John of the Cross, one of the masters in faith. The faith life of St. John of the Cross and his guidelines are of great importance in order to deepen the faith of the consecrated and to face the challenges of faith. The results of the survey undertaken for this study points out the weakened faith of the consecrated and the urgency of developing profound faith in Jesus through contemplation. By expanding their knowledge and conviction about matters of faith, the consecrated can grow in their personal relationship with Jesus. By doing so, they become friends of God and make others friends of God as well.
