Retreat…

Posted: August 11, 2019 by CatholicJules in Life's Journeys, Memory Book

You attend a retreat and the Lord speaks to you, you take notes then after the retreat you shelve your notebook all is lost!

You share keypoints and takeaways with your members, will they understand what has to be done, will they be moved? The nuances and graces received from the retreat are all lost on them!

You attend and are moved to do more, pray more, be more but afterwards go back to your old comforts and ways of doing what you have been doing. All is lost!

You attempt to put into practice what you have learnt and at the first sign of resistance you wave the white flag. All is lost!

Having attended a spirit filled retreat perhaps one should modify an old motto, ‘No retreat, No surrender! I will move forwards with and in the Lord and will only surrender all to Him’ Amen
