Quite a weekend

We hosted a discernment retreat this weekend. Nine young women shared prayer, discussions, instruction and fun. A few received the grace to come much closer to recognizing God's call, some to married life, some to religious life. Sr. Margaret Michael, our national vocation director, is still in town with us. It's always nice to have a "new" sister around for a few days! She's heading off to Boston tomorrow, and I'll follow on Wednesday for our community gathering and retreat. Meanwhile, tomorrow is the feast of St. Ignatius, so I have a full day available to celebrate!
Please continue to pray for the retreat participants. It is so edifying to see how many young people are willing to give serious consideration to a life of consecration.

May the Holy Spirit guide all of those who are discerning for the religious life. Hopefully this young generation will illumine the path for all us.

In response to the last comment:

Yes! My friends and I plan on it, with the grace of God.

Do you know if there will be a discernment retreat in New England sometime soon?
