Welcome to this year’s online Holy Week Retreat!
If you haven’t done the pre-retreat activity, click HERE.
Just two things to remember as you begin this online retreat.
First: GIVE YOUR TIME.
It’s not every day that you can spend time with the Lord in such a concentrated way. Make sure you carve out a solid, uninterrupted chunk of time for each of the three sessions of this retreat. Each chunk should take about 45 minutes to an hour or more, depending on your pace.
Second: TAKE YOUR TIME.
This second tip has nothing to do with the actual amount of time you give the retreat. It has everything to do with NOT rushing, pausing wherever and whenever something strikes you. In other words, be willing to “waste your time!” The graces from the retreat will be effective only if you take time to savor them and let them “sink in.”
Be generous with the Lord! But our generosity with the Lord always translates to generosity with ourselves. The time we spend with the Lord is time spent connecting with our deeper selves and our deepest desires.
