What is a retreat?
A retreat is a collection of meditations on a specific theme intended to help you to set apart a few days from your daily routine to examine your life in the presence of Jesus Christ: to see what is going well, to see what needs to change, to make resolutions and to begin again.
Suggestions for listening to the retreat:
- Read and meditate on the Scripture passages referenced in the meditations.
- Keep a journal: Write down moments from the meditations that strike you, as well as the thoughts, inspirations and resolutions that arise from your prayer and reflection. If you would like a guide to journaling, click the following link to download our Meditation Journal Page.
- Strive to keep silence: A retreat requires interior silence and exterior silence, which helps us maintain a lasting conversation with our Lord.
