I forget if I told you or not, but this was a retreat for clergy spouses that is given once a year and it's the first one I've been to. The really cool part was that three of my spiritual direction class mates were also there! Sister Macrina Wiederkehr of St Scholastica was our presenter and she talked about the seven sacred pauses, which are the times that the Benedictines' pray durning the day, it is also the name of her newest book. HIGHLY recommend it to all my spiritual friends that love that kind of thing anyway. What I have found interesting is that while St Scholastica is a Benedictine order, they don't pray seven times a day, only the Trappist do. Yes, if you were wondering, that is what the Abbey at Gethsemani is and I did pray the seven sacred pauses when I was there.
Preacher man and I will be praying over our newest group of CALL graduates tonight and it's very exciting for me. I haven't had the opportunity to pray over people like I did in Wilmore, so I'm jumping around doing the anointing dance, which I just made up!
