In a few hours, I will leave with one of my classmates to our pre-ordination retreat in Cullman, Alabama. A lot of people ask the question Cullman, Alabama? What's there? That was probably my first thought when we made our first retreat there almost 5 years ago. It is a beautiful Benedictine monastery and school that was founded in the 19th Century. The location has truly been a blessing because it allows you to step back and quiet yourself.
And that is what we will be doing on this 5-day silent retreat. To quiet ourselves; to listen to what our Lord is asking of us; to gain strength for the coming weeks, months and years; and to pray for His guidance.
So please pray for us.
God Bless You.
