Retreat

No, I’m not pulling back from the front! On retreat yesterday with many of the priests of the diocese. Down on the edge of Lough Gill, Co. Sligo. A lovely location. Just thought I’d share a line used by the Retreat Servant yesterday – that’s his choosing of title – said he’s not a Retreat Master but a Retreat Servant and that his job was “not to get in God’s way”

Thought it was a good line! So wherever you are today and whatever you say or do – wherever any of us are today – maybe that’s the key that we’d try not get in God’s way but allow His word fall where needed. That includes, of course, into our own hearts too.

Another thought from the retreat – “Christianity isn’t so much about getting you into heaven as getting heaven into you”
