Why a Retreat?
We seek happiness in life, in our work, in hobbies and sports, and in many other aspects of family life. But we find that these things, good as they are, bring only temporary happiness. Deep lasting happiness comes from discovering God in these things and using them in accordance with His will. We need to take time out, to be quiet, to think and pray about our life and our relationship with God.
Time is precious to all of us, but dedicating a couple of days out of the year to renew your relationship with God and grow in self-knowledge will have far reaching benefits. The times of prayer led by the priest, the talks given by a lay person and the periods of prayerful silence help you to make a good retreat and to improve your personal, family and professional life.
St. Josemaria Escriva, Furrow, #177
“Days on retreat. Recollection in order to know yourself and thus make progress. A necessary time for discovering where and how you should change your life.”
