Into the Silence

I scheduled this post on Monday before I left on my annual five-day silent Ignatian retreat with  Fr. James Buckley of the FSSP. One of the convenient features of blogger is to be able to arrange posts to publish later. And that's what I normally do before I go on retreat. Unfortunately, I didn't have time to schedule any posts except for Part 2 of the Church Militant story, so I'm just leaving this notice. 

I'm on retreat. I won't be publishing any posts or moderating comments. 

So if Susan doesn't post anything, we'll be on silence until I return on Saturday.

This is a totally silent retreat: no screen time, no phones, nothing but an opportunity to encounter the Lord. Just thinking about it fills me with peace. There are always plenty of challenges and this year has been no different. I will be placing all things before the Lord: the good, the bad, and the ugly. 

And listening....... or at least trying to listen. Sometime the interior chatter is worse than the world's noise.

I'll be praying for all our members and visitors to the blog. Many of you are a great consolation to me and I thank God for you.

Please pray for me as well. May God bless us all and pour out His saving grace on our poor world.
