Day of Recollection
The Postulants are finishing up their first year of formation with evaluations and planning for the Novitiate. I and, to some extent, the entire friary am busy planning for the upcoming Chapter which begins on the 19th. Our entire province awaits the elections of new leadership which will take place at Chapter. And the whole Church awaits Pentecost.
So the Day of Recollection which we had planned for today was a happy moment to quiet down and turn to the Lord for peace and consolation. We had exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and Midday Prayer at 3:00 and have been spending the rest of the day in quiet both in the Chapel and on the friary grounds. At 8:45 we will pray Night Prayer and end with Benediction.
I share the beautiful scene in our chapel with you and pray that you find the peace we have found this day.
