The retreat was a special time for me; full of prayer, reflection, correction, and thanksgiving. It’s easy for me to get wrapped up in the trivial matters, so I was able to refocus on the basics; the pillars of Community and the foundation of my walk. The retreat was especially providential to my prayer life and relationships.
I was moved by videos of Mother Elvira and her conviction. Even in the moments that I didn’t understand what she was saying, the language of hope, life and love proved to be universal. Although I’ve never met Mother Elvira, her presence is so powerful that I experience it everyday here in Community through Albino, Joyce, Don Marco, and all the guys here.
