Dear Friends,

Peace.   My retreat went very well and it gave me an opportunity to reflect on the workings of God in my life.   I remembered many of you in prayer and in a particularly way those of you who are discerning your vocation with me.


I spent a lot of time reflecting on the Scriptures, particularly those texts that my Director and I felt might benefit my spiritual growth at this time.


For St. Francis of Assisi prayer and spending time in solitude was always important.   He encouraged his followers to desire the grace of prayer above everything else, and in every way possible.   Prayer led Francis to do wonderful things with his life.   May it lead you to do great things for God with yours.

God bless you.
