make a virtual retreat at Our lady of the Holy spirit monastery

Holy Mother's Center

Think you are all alone and cut off from your Church as you ponder the inscrutable happenings of the COVID 19 virus? There are two ways to look at Church: one is a place where you go to pray, and the second one is you are the Church (not the Church Universal) and when you pray, you join with Christ as He ascends to the Father in each Eucharist giving Him all honor and glory.

Recently, I made a virtual retreat with Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Monastery (Trappist) in Conyers, Georgia. I found it very inspiring and a wonderful way to actually hear Trappist Monks give their views about contemplative spirituality and moving from self to God.

I recommend that you look up this reference for the various retreat topics at the monastery. Father Mark, O.C.S.O. is the retreat director and has put together an impressive list of topics. You can make a virtual retreat from any place in the US. I also encourage you to share this site with others who might need encouragement and hope.

Praise to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, now and forever. The God who is, who was, and who is to come at the end of the ages. Amen and Amen. –Cistercian doxology
