As an Ursuline sister, one of the precious opportunities we have is to go on retreat each year. This means we go away for a week to a place of quiet, beautiful space and interior time. It is such a blessed time. You get to spend time with yourself thinking about your life over the past year and planning for next year's. Quite honestly at the beginning, I do lots of sleeping. Then I get inspired and motivated to pray and just be with God.
This year, I went to California-www.vallombrosa.org-What a wonderful place-so welcoming and peaceful!!
I listened to Fr. Anthony Gittens, CSSp talk about Mission, Evangelization and Discipleship. We are all called to live and act as Jesus did. Our Eucharist words of "do this in memory of me" mean do as Jesus did.
Prayers and blessings,
