Please remember the church has planned two pilgrimages (Fall 2018— Medjugorje) and (Spring 2019—Holy Land). Two great opportunities for times of communion with fellow travelers and opportunity for silence in a beautiful sacred space.
“Isn’t it a shame that we live in a society that so fears silence. We turn the radios on in our rooms, the TV’s on in our dens, the stereos on in our cars, and when we are not near any of these places, we plug iPods into our ears— anything to avoid silence. Yet silence itself is the language of God! I’ll let you in on something I just recently learned: set aside a few minutes each day to just be silent, and you will find that you instantly become a more peaceful person. Imagine Jesus saying to you (as He said to His disciples), ‘Come with me by yourself to a quiet place.’ (cf. Mk 6:31).”
