Yay, It is Retreat Time

I leave tomorrow morning for my annual retreat. After a busy summer the included giving several retreats at various locations, and teaching course on St. Ignatius at a Presbyterian gathering, not to mention all the prep for various upcoming retreats and programs, I’m ready to have a week away to just be with God. This is the one time I don’t take my computer with me, and don’t deal with e-mails, texts or phone.

I say this every year either at the front end or back end of my retreat, but I can’t encourage enough trying to find an opportunity to make a retreat. Yes, we have our daily prayer practice, and that is of enormous benefit in itself. But there is nothing like going off to take uninterrupted time with God. I recognize it is harder for some people to get away than others, but for those that can do so, you won’t be sorry you did

As I go off, I ask you to keep my in prayer, that I may be open to whatever it is God wishes to reveal during this time. And be assured of my prayers for you as well.
