A mirage

Well yes, I know, I said I wouldn't post again until mid-April, but I'm back from retreat, Lent hasn't started yet, people have sent me various interesting things, and I couldn't resist sharing them with you.

The retreat was wonderful, by the way. It was a directed retreat, and I had a brilliant director, an elderly priest, who was fantastically discerning, and really pushed me beyond my limits. I'm told that the new PC term for a spiritual director is a "soul friend". To be honest, apart from the ghastliness of the name itself, I'm not terribly interested in having a cuddly soul friend. I want someone who will direct me, and that's what I got.

I agree with you; I need direction!

I saw your other post, the one that started asking what have other people called me... Very deep (hence I left it to read again later). You have a good heart; the Lord rewards that.
