Reflecting on the Cross and Religious Life

     From July 18th through the 23rd our monastic community made its annual retreat.  This is a five-day period of prayer and reflection for the renewing and affirming of our commitment to live as faithful monks and followers of Christ.  The facilitator for the event was Passionist Father Pat Brennan, C.P., from St. Paul of the Cross Monastery in Detroit.  The topic of this year’s retreat was the “Religious Life as a Special Sharing in the Sacred Triduum”.  Fr. Pat presented the many ways in which the vocation to religious life is a means of entering into active participation in the mystery of Christ’s Passion, Death and Resurrection.  We are very grateful for Fr. Pat’s wisdom, wit and spiritual guidance in making this year’s retreat so memorable!
