Our November Retreat
Monday we began our 4 day retreat in preparation for our community devotional renewal of vows on Friday, November 21st which is the Feast of the Presentation of Mary in the Temple and Pro Orantibus Day which means “For those who pray”. It is a day set aside for the Church to grow in her understanding, appreciation and spiritual and temporal support for all who devote their lives to prayer – worship of God and intercession for the world.
We had quite a surprise upon awaking with about 4 inches of snow.
The white silence has been a perfect setting for our days of solitude and renewal.
Please keep us in prayer as we keep all of you tucked in our hearts – in the Indwelling Trinity.
I leave you with a poem by Sister Rose Marie of the Merciful Heart of Jesus
Love in the Mist
“I am coming to you in a dense cloud.” (Ex. 19:9)
A silent mist
softly fell upon me.
The cloud swallowed me—
And this is how love appears
From the inside—
A cool, mysterious fog.
