Retreats are wonderful, mysterious journeys where we allow the Divine Master to lead us…even when we don’t know where He is leading us!
It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve blogged, and partly that’s because I was preparing to be away for two weeks. This Monday, July 11th, I will begin my annual eight-day retreat. (Some day I need to tweet a retreat…wouldn’t that be awesome to follow a nun’s progress on an eight-day retreat? Retreats are such mysterious and amazing encounters with the Lord. Maybe next year.)
So I will be offline for another two weeks, but I’d like to bring you with me. Send me your specific intentions–or even just send me your name–and I will bring your individual intentions to the Lord while I’m on retreat.
This weekend, I begin my annual 8-day retreat. I won’t be blogging or posting these days.
My annual retreat has become one of my very favorite times of the year, after which I usually return home deeply refreshed, renewed, and recommitted to my journey towards Christification. Something about the silence, the intense focus on prayer and my relationship with God, and the lack of the daily hustle and bustle, really fills my soul. I have come to treasure this beautiful week when I can focus all of my attention on my Beloved Master.
I invite you to send in any prayer requests you’d like me to pray for during this week–via email, in the comments below, or on Facebook!
May your week be deeply blessed by the knowledge and embrace of Christ.
