On Sunday, we finished our pre-ordination retreat. At a Franciscan retreat center, with an amazing church.
But it really doesn't matter whether a retreat is noisy and upbeat or silent and solitary. The odd part of any retreat is what happens next. Does it change anything?
The easy answer is to do...nothing. Back to business as usual. Perhaps a little more relaxed for the time away, but nothing really different.
Or do we let it mean something, let it change us?
Kind of like the decision that each of us has. Every time we go to Mass.
