Put up with each other. Forgive the things you are holding against one another. Forgive, just as the Lord forgave you.
- Colossians 3:13
Seems especially important given my experiences this weekend.
I was desiring You
"The Eucharist is home to the crucified Christ we see on the cross, not just the one at the Last Supper. It is this crucified Christ that will form us in His image."
This past weekend I was blessed to attend a women’s retreat hosted by my parish’s Women’s Club. I spoke briefly at it in the morning as well. God opened my eyes to some big things while I was there. The day after the retreat I also began to read The Gift of Faith by Tadeusz Dajczer. This post is a response to the retreat, to the quotes from the book listed below, and to an Adoration session I went to on Monday.
Also, I’ll be linking to a longer post I wrote at some point in the near future. It will give some details on the retreat I attended and the Adoration session I had yesterday.
-wrote 7 more pages on my thesis, bringing my page count to 23.
-spent too much time replying to a number of Pro-Choice Yaks. Catholic colleges have a whole different idea of YikYak.
-took a brief nap. I almost always feel tired these days.
-cleaned my room since it’s getting blessed.
I’m ahead of my self-appointed schedule. I’m not really sure what to do with all this free time. I was super stressed this weekend so I put my nose to the grindstone for the past two days and it has worked out.
Sometimes I just want to scroll through the Catholic tag and see happy Catholic things instead of misinformed, angry people bashing the church. Tumblr Catholics should create a secondary tag specifically for nice Catholic remarks, something that wouldn’t get much traffic otherwise.
Today’s retreat was phenomenal! It started off with a gorgeous gift from God’s created and ended with an outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
