In the Gospels we read on several occasions where Jesus felt pity for the people He encountered. Ever ask yourself what does Jesus feel when He receives your prayers filled with sorrow, confusion, frustration, or sickness?
Just returned from my first 3-day silent retreat. Still trying to process all of the fruits. The worldly noise is overwhelming. I would highly recommend and encourage your taking advantage of such a retreat. You will not regret it. Praise be to God!
