STAY INSPIRED 19th SUNDAY ORDINARY TIME, AUG 12-13: Message from Fr Phil

Space for Silence

As this article went to print earlier this week, I was on my annual silent retreat. (Even though you’ll see me this weekend!) Pope Francis says, “Those who live a retreat in an authentic way experience the attraction and fascination of God and return renewed and transfigured in their daily lives, their ministry and their relationships.” He says as Christians we need “space and time to listen intensely to the word of God in silence and in prayer.”

So as I write this, preparing to depart for retreat, I leave us some space for sacred silence below.

Shhh… God bless…Fr. Phil Hurley, SJ
