Go to the desert

“To receive the grace of God you must go to the desert and stay awhile.” Blessed Charles de Foucauld

Every Catholic who really desires to grow in their friendship with Christ and wants to learn what God wants them to do, should be going on a week-end retreat once a year.

There are many good retreats out there, including those given by my brother Legionaries in Cheshire, Philadelphia, NY, Atlanta, Detroit, Chicago, Los Angeles, etc…we all need to make serious time for God. Sunday Mass and even daily prayers will never be enough! Make this part of your new year’s resolution, and put it on the calendar now!!
