Spiritual Retreat

Just three of the reflection questions we had to answer and talk about in our small groups.

I just came home from our university's annual religious retreat.  It was held in the Carmelites House of Spirituality in Tagaytay City.

Because we were there to pray, reflect and to deepen our relationship with God, we didn't really have enough time take pictures but here are some of those we were able to take.

We had a Eucharistic celebration every day and today we were given a special blessing. We were anointed with holy oil.

Here I am with my prayer partner.

This year's retreat was light and simple but it had its beautiful moments.  "In everything, love and serve the Lord" I think that is one thing I will remember from this retreat.

I came home renewed and wanting to become a better person.  However, with all the good thoughts and good intentions I came home with, I also brought home a terrible itch!  I've had it for two days now and I have really been suffering.  I don't know if it's an allergic reaction to something I ate or something in the yard.  I did not eat anything out of the ordinary. I hope it goes away after a couple of Alerta tablets.

I forgot which part of my body this is.
So that's what I've been up since Wednesday. What have you been busy with?


  1. That does look like a nasty allergic reaction! I hope it clears up soon for you!

    The spiritual retreat sounded wonderful - what a great way to re-energise and reconnect!


    1. Finally, after four days, the itchiness subsided and now it's all gone, thank God.

      Spiritual retreats are indeed wonderful!
