When was the last time you went away for some time of prayer and reflection?
For most people, the answer might be never. That’s sad, because we all need some time to decompress from the stresses of life. We all know things have been tough for a lot of people, and all this stress has taken its toll.
Some might seek the peace they need by going to the ocean, the mountains, or maybe even the desert. People have been going to these places for thousands of years.
Others find peace by going to a church or retreat center. I recently had such an experience by visiting a Franciscan Monastery not too far from my house. It was a great day.
