Looking back. It’s an important exercise

Embracing Nathan after giving him a crucifix to remember his time at the seminary.

Even after a day has passed, I still cannot find the exact words to describe the weekend back at Menlo. It still remains an awe-filled place to be and a sense of profound quiet and prayerfulness still breathes within its walls.

Though I may be at a lost for words, I do reflect and realize how God writes such a beautiful story. Above is a picture of Nathan who was once a little boy during my life at Saint Stephen. I was so delighted to know that he was one of the retreat members and that he is filled with much knowledge about God and the scriptures. It was reassuring to know once again how God writes our stories!
