Thanksgiving Retreat in Florida

This past November 25 to 28 in Florida, more precisely in the retreat center of "Camp Shalom", about 140 of us came together for the Thanksgiving Retreat.

The main topic of reflection was the recent approval of the Home of the Mother and its spirituality. Brian Jackson and Kevin Hernandez gave talks, one on Thursday and the other on Sunday.

Brian prepared us for the Advent season, presenting St. John the Baptist and Our Lady as models. Kevin prepared us for battle by telling the life of St. Sebastian, martyr and patron saint of the Home. We also had the privilege of listening to our Founder, Father Rafael Alonso Reymundo, who explained the Statutes of the Home of the Mother. It was a gift to hear what it means to be a member of the Home from the Founder himself.

That night we watched the video on the history of the Home, and for many it was an opportunity to learn more about the history and spirituality of this great family. Many also expressed their thanks for the presence of the Servant Priests and Brothers, who carry out such a generous work for the souls, through their testimony, preaching, and administering the Sacrament of Confession.

As always, our first love in the home, the Eucharist, took the place of honor in our meeting and in His presence we could meditate on the inspiring words of our Founder, Fr. Rafael, who continues to speak to our consciences, at times numbed and accommodated.

We finished our retreat with a magnificent festival where everyone, without leaving anyone out, contributed their original and witty ideas and, of course, showed them off on stage. We had a blast!
