Time for R & R...



Yes, Retreat and Reflection. Tomorrow is the day I begin retreat at St. Meinrad Archabbey. It's been a year and time again!!! But before I go, I want to leave you with a couple of my "treasures." First, as I was going through one of my books, I found this card. Wondered what had happened to it because it gives me such a boost at the end of the day. (Perhaps mislaying it is so I don't lose my appreciation for it.)

The prayer on the back goes like this:

Thank you, God, for love's unfolding this day through the people and events that touched my life. I entrust my night's sleep to your renewing care. Copyright, Abbey Press, 1994


The other thing I would like to leave with you is the name of a book. It's called Love in the Little Things: Tales of Family Life by Mike Aquilina. It is wonderfully tender book about Christ in the midst of family from Mike's own reflections.

And so it is that I venture off.

Thanks be to God.

  4. Cathy, that card is precious! I am believing that God has prepared a special place for you and will join you as you go away to be with Him. I pray you will recline against Him and listen to His sweet speaking.

  8. God bless you Grandmak

    you are old enough to remember the true Catholic church.

    I invite you to become a papist. Save the church and the world through devotion to the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.

    Make this your goal for the remainder of your life.

    You will not like what you see but if I am wrong you have a duty to me as a fellow Catholic to prove me wrong.

    God bless you and all yours
