New Videocast: The Need to Go On Retreat and the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament

  /   Sunday July 05, 2015  

For our life in Christ, it’s important that we take an annual retreat, and really, we need to take a family retreat (either in addition to or as your retreat).  However, my wife and I have small children.  If one of us goes on retreat, the other is left to take care of them for a whole weekend.  Taking the kids on a retreat with a lot of talks isn’t a readily available option for us.  However, we can take a pilgrimage, bring the kids briefly to Adoration, and then each take turns in silence before Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament.  In this video, I talk about the place we go, the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament at Our Lady of the Angels Monastery in Hanceville, AL.  I have some outside footage of it as well.  I couldn’t video inside because they prohibit it in order to maintain a place of silence.
