It's Holy Week, a time for reflection on the mysteries of our Catholic faith, in commemoration of events that took place over two thousand years ago.
A retreat is a break from our hectic work schedules and our daily lives, an opportunity to make time for God and for ourselves through prayer and the grace of rest.
It is a time to step back from the noise of the outside world to enter the solace of our inner selves so that we can have conversations with God and so we can listen to the deep desires of our souls.
Fr. Johnny Go, SJ, is conducting a three-day spiritual retreat called "Are You the One? Praying in Disenchantment" at the Ateneo from Holy Thursday to Black Saturday.
For those unable to attend in person, an online retreat is available as well for you to do at your own time and at your own pace. Visit Pins of Light.
Wherever you are in the world this week, at a beach or in the mountains, in a big city elsewhere, or even resting at home, perhaps you can carve a few minutes out of your day for the next three days to listen to yourself and to look for God's presence in the different parts of your life.
God is good.
Life is good.
