Retreat as a Priority for Today's Laity
"I suggest that more of our people avail themselves of the opportunity of a yearly retreat, either as part of a parish group, a family retreat or a personal day apart from our frenzied lives to allow the Word of God to address you during a time of quiet and solitude. More than ever the quality of our friendship with the Lord demands a time apart to rest with Him a little and to be refreshed by His Call, as recorded in the Gospel of St. Matthew, Chapter 11 29-30: 'Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy burdened, and I will give you rest…. For my yoke is easy and my burden light' " - Daniel Cardinal DiNardo (Texas Catholic Herald)
