We would like to invite you to make a personal retreat, at your convenience.
Rest for Your Souls is a retreat developed for the Staff here at the Mission, but we would like to share it with all of our friends.
To make the retreat, you are invited to set aside 3-4 hours on each of three days, when you can spend time with the Lord. They can be any set of days and times that are convenient for you. This is your retreat.
At the beginning of your retreat time you are invited to read that day's Reflection as if it was Jesus Who was speaking to you.
Your retreat time can include Holy Mass, Adoration, Confession, quiet times at home, walks in nature, or all of the above. It is up to you. And Our Lord.
“Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest – rest for your souls.”
My little children, you do not know how much I love you and how I long to spend time with you – when our hearts can speak to each other and we can rest one in the other.
Yes, little ones, I rest in you. I come and lay My head on your heart, happy to find love, and faith, and obedience; happy to find My children.
In the world and in this life there is so much work to do, so much weariness, so much exhaustion. So much exhaustion of your souls because of suffering, of the different trials of faith and obedience, of the requirements of charity, and of so many other struggles that you constantly live in order to be faithful to Me.
