Rising Again and Again

Brene Brown is a popular writer whose books have been on the New York Times best seller list.  Her latest book is Rising Strong, The Reckoning. The Rumble. The Revolution.  She explores what it means to overcome adversity and be strong once again.  The process of rising strong often begins with being laid flat.  One of the people she interviews says the following.  “It is so hard to be face down on the arena floor, but if you open your eyes when you’re down there and take a minute to look around, you get a completely new perspective on the world.  You see things that you don’t see when you’re standing tall.  You see more struggle—more conflict and suffering.  It can make you more compassionate if you open your eyes and look around while you’re down there.”

Pope Francis in the book, The Name of God is Mercy, tells us this, “The most important thing in the life of every man and every woman is not that they should never fall along the way.  The important thing is always to get back up, not to stay on the ground licking your wounds.  The Lord of mercy always forgives me, he always offers me the possibility of starting over.  He loves me for what I am, he wants to raise me up, and he extends his hand to me.”Read More

Light Penetrates Darkness

In the book Little Pieces of Light, Joyce Rupp writes about darkness and light:

O God,
as I look back at my life
I see many pieces of light.
They have given me hope and comfort
in my bleak and weary times.

I think you for the radiance
of a dark sky full of stars,
and for the faithful light of dawn
which follows every turn of darkness.

I think you for loved ones and strangers
whose inner beacons of light
have warmed and welcomed my pain.

  • Thank you again for the amazing weekend! The retreat was wonderful and the sacredness of these grounds is priceless. You feel the love the minute you drive in. May God Bless you all for your ministry – Abundantly!!!

  • It was my first time at a retreat-life long Catholic 63 years old ­– about time! I was sort of concerned about the silence factor and my, what a peaceful-prayerful-wonderful experience it has been. Thank you for the silence.

  • My third retreat at the St. Anthony Spirituality Center was like coming home – welcoming, safe, and prayerful. I felt cared for and could experience God’s love on many levels.

  • St. Anthony’s is a very warm, welcoming and safe haven. I love to leave the noisy world we live in and come into a world of silence. We need this time to get our focus back and become rooted again in our faith, our journey.

  • The conference was very well presented. The speakers gave me much to think about. I very much enjoyed walking on the grounds of St. Anthony's. What a beautiful place! I felt so close to God and his creation.

  • I always feel truly welcome at St. Anthony's. You all are so hospitable. The beautiful surroundings in and outside makes prayer easy. I'm going home refreshed and renewed.

  • From the minute I entered, I was welcomed and treated like I belonged here. Like I had come home. What a wonderful experience!
