Retreat Reflection

We just completed our yearly Community of Jesus members’ retreat.  I’m pondering the word retreat, defined as: withdrawal to a more favorable position, a place of privacy, a place affording peace, a sheltered and secluded place. It is, in my experience, exactly that, and yet not exactly. For hidden within the quiet times of prayer and reflection, teachings that inspire, and meals excellently prepared and served with precision, is a trumpet call to go forward. The trumpet is silent but strong and there’s no way to ignore it.

About Sr. Nun Other

May 16, 2012, completed my 30th year as a Sister. It was both a milestone and just another day in an interesting journey. Some of those thirty years included singing with Gloriae Dei Cantores, marching in Spirit of America band, and serving on our Sisters Council. As a monastic, I live surrounded by beauty and within a frame work of opportunity and possibility. I'm sixty-four (much to my surprise) and extremely grateful for my life as a sister - past, present, and future.
