holy week retreat 2012

i am attending a silent retreat at the Transfiguration monastery at malaybalay bukidnon philippines run by the benedictines.

i feel i am home for a i am a true blood bedan since my prep days in 1974.

holy week is the holiest time of the christian year. this week long commemoration at transfiguration monastery is a special time of prayer and reflection. guided reflections are
provided to assist us in our preparations for the great mystery of Easter.

As a retreatant we have the opportunity to experience and participate in the soln and festive celebration of the Holy week liturgy led by the monastic community.

we were encouraged to be silent to facilitate prayer and reflection during this sacred time. the intervals between meals, conferences and common prayers are times for private prayer and reflection.

i am attending this kind of retreat to experience the space and peace of the benedictine's monastic home. for once in my life i like to experience quiet time .
