As I am scheduling ahead, I just know I will have felt your prayer. I cannot tell you yet what happened as I have not yet begun the retreat as I write this, but I seem to have chosen a picture that goes with our Chapter call to set sail. I feel I am on my last voyage and I want to be ready for whatever the future holds.
One quote I love from Cardinal Sarah's The Power of Silence is:
"God achieves everything, acts in all circumstances, and brings about all our interior transformations. But he does it when we wait for him in recollection and silence.
In silence, not in the turmoil and noise, God enters into the innermost depths of our being." p.25
