Philippines: Pauline Family Annual Retreat 2009 (2)


From Sunday, July 12 to Friday, July 17, 2009, the second group of the Pauline Family gathered for a joint Spiritual Exercises at the Carmelite Missionaries Center of Spirituality in Tagaytay City. The group was composed of 14 SSP priests and brothers, 6 FSP, 19 PDDM, 9 SGBP and Fr. Joey Tuazon, a postulant of the IJP.

As in the first group, Sr. Elena Bosetti, SGBP gave all the inputs on the theme of Galatians 4:19: “My Children, With Whom I am Again in Labor Until Christ is Formed in You“. The five days were spent mostly in silence, and listening to Sr. Elena who explained with such clarity and passion the letter of Paul to the Galatians. Her own reflections inspired us to pray with the Word in spirit of joy, praise and thanksgiving to God.
