Epiphany Retreat

I was away on retreat at the Passionist center this weekend, a perfect time to seek the Lord in discernment. As we journey in Faith with the Wise, we find that God is with us. He reveals more of Himself at every turn.

I was blessed with profound moments of prayer, the intercession of St. Joseph and St. Gabriel Possenti, and the fellowship of good men. I was especially drawn into the Letter of St.Paul to the Ephesians:

For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, 16 that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with might through his Spirit in the inner man, 17 and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may have power to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fulness of God. 20 Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, for ever and ever. Amen.

With the Wise, let us bow our knees before Jesus. Seeking Him, let us find him in the manger, at the river, in Cana, on the mountain, on the Cross, on the altar, and in our heart~
