What is a Retreat?

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” Mat 11:29.

Longing for some peace and quiet?  Wanting to get in touch with God?
Jesus says, “Come”.

Is a Retreat the answer?

Into the BushIn the Gospels we often see Jesus going into the desert for solitude and silence and to meet with God. When we are still and wholly present to God, our souls are refreshed.

To connect and dialogue in a meaningful way it is essential to give God our undivided attention. In retreat it is easier to centre on God’s presence within and control distractions  which compete for our attention. In retreat we are freed from daily routines,  demands of family and work and we are able to present to God an open, receiving heart, a listening ear and eyes willing to see, wholly directed at the wonder and reality of his presence all around.

RetreatIn the sacred space of a retreat we can look at the world, with fresh eyes, we can enter our concerns in the company of Jesus and find his healing and compassionate understanding. God is all around and in all things and we are more likely to see God and hear  and know God when we retreat and go to a quiet place, to be with God. At a retreat we have the wonderful opportunity to hear the voice of God more clearly than in the midst of the noise of daily life. As we meditate on scriptures, sit and contemplate the beauty of his creation, pray and reflect and listen intently from the heart, God will speak and we will be blessed.
