Catholic Voices - Want to know God's will more deeply? Take a retreat - or a sabbatical!

After 11 years as a priest and six as the vocation director for the Archdiocese of Seattle, I can assure you of one thing: If you want to know God’s will more deeply, spend more time with the Risen Jesus Christ! While ongoing engagement with the sacraments, Scripture, community, catechesis and ministry all fundamentally deepen our relationship with the Lord, spending extra time in a retreat always bears fruit. A retreat helps fill our souls with “rich soil” that can produce fruit “a hundred or sixty or thirtyfold.” (Matthew 13:8)
