SILENCE: We need to hear what the Lord is saying to us. Abide in the deep peace of Christ, love and adore Him ~ and listen.
Holy Mass - daily receive Holy Communion. We need to be intimately close to Him and there is no closer way on earth than to receive Him into our hearts, into our souls.
Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament - spend time before the Lord. Adoration is an act of faith ~ Faith in The Real Presence of Christ is the Pearl of Great Price.
CONFESSION: - Retreats are about growing closer to the Lord, examining where we could improve, where we have failed. Pray that the Holy Spirit will assist you in your confession. Pray that your examination of conscience will lead you to true repentance and total trust in Divine Mercy.
SPIRITUAL READING: Scripture and other holy books. The beauty and peace of the early morning are an ideal time to enter into the immense riches found in the Holy Bible.
BLESSED MOTHER: grow closer to the Blessed Mother. Learn from the apostles who gathered around her after Jesus ascended into heaven. The apostles learned from her as She manifested her devotion with ardent prayer at Pentecost. She is our Mother too and she wishes to draw us close to her. She wants us to pray the rosary ... it is a special means she uses to attach the soul to her and to help the soul to grow in holiness. Everywhere she appears she exhorts her children to pray the rosary. Pray the rosary during your retreat, and she will draw you closer to Her Son ~ that is her role. “To Jesus, through Mary." And she will shower you with an abundance of grace.
