There is a retreat going on here at the Motherhouse this week. The retreat director is Fr. Albert Haase, OFM—a Franciscan Friar of the St. Louis Province. The retreat title is “The Art and Heart of the Spiritual Journey.” I sat in on Monday afternoon’s conference, and liked what I heard. One thing he said was that “contemplation is looking for and finding God in our daily life.” When we are aware, God is everywhere. That is true. Most of the time, we don’t think about God in our life. Thursday afternoon, instead of a talk, we will have a Healing/Anointing Service in Chapel…and the talk will be at 6 p.m.
This week is Catholic Schools Week. God bless all teachers and students in the Catholic School system. Having taught and been principal in Catholic Schools for nearly 50 years, my heart is still there. Catholic Schools do a marvelous job of educating students.
