Pausing to Review the Graces We Have ReceivedGuide: The Graces Take Us DeeperWe pause again to let the graces we have received penetrate our hearts more deeply. We are making this retreat in the midst of our everyday lives. We let these reflections become everyday for us - more familiar and comfortable. We prepare to move into the contemplations that Jesus will show us about his own life's journey.This week doesn't take us into new territory. It just takes us deeper. We begin this week with our desires. I renew my desire, my passion, my choice, to be with Jesus - to want to know him more intimately, to love him more deeply, to follow him with more of my heart. This week is not one of deeper struggle or more intense thinking. This is a week of affirmation. All week, in many very concrete ways, in the background experience of the in between times, I say, "Yes, this is what I want. This is what I choose. To be with you, Jesus."
