On retreat and praying for you

From Jan. 3 to Feb. 5 I'm going to make a special, month long retreat with the spiritual exercises of St. Ignatius. It's a special time of grace. I thought of asking to do this last year when I made my silver jubilee of religious profession.

Needless to say I won't be blogging. But I'll keep everyone who visits my blog in my prayers. Please feel free to leave your intentions--even if I can't read them until I get back, God will know what they are. I will also be very grateful for any prayers in return, that the retreat will bear good fruits of grace.

Thank you!

I have a very special intention if you can mention me. Also, what part of the excersises do you pray for only three days worth? I have shied away from it because I don't have the full time to commit, but I feel rather drawn to it and need a spiritual retreat rather badly!

Please pray for me, Sister that I can get through this winter of 4 kids, homeschooling and pregnancy! I sometimes wish I had the time for an Ignatian retreat! I will pray for you, in the meantime that you will have a good retreat and be closer to Him!

For the family that suddenly lost their mother on January 3, 2006. The little boy is not yet 11 and this makes the third death in the family in less than a year.

I know you're on retreat and not reading the blog but just wanted to assure you of my continued prayers for a most grace-filled time.

My prayers are with you, too, Sister. I leave my intentions here with you and God, and thank you for your prayers in return.

I was wondering where your title came from:

Dear young people: Do not be afraid of Christ! He takes nothing away, and he gives you everything. When we give ourselves to him, we receive a hundredfold in return. Yes, open, open wide the doors to Christ – and you will find true life.

Pope Benedict XVI

Sister, I have been praying for you as well... oh and I am jealous that you got to go on a month long Ignatian retreat, but I'll get over it. I'll be visiting your Sisters in Chicago in February when you are done with retreat! (In Chicago for movie night).

In Him, Lauren

Sister, the prayer I left with you was answered, and today I was able to receive Communion for the first time in more than twenty years. You will always remain in my prayers with deep gratitude.
