"A retreat with the Lord can be spent listening" by: Rosario Resendez

   This past week I was on a silent retreat.  
   During this time we silence ourselves so that we can better hear the word of God in ourselves. 
   That week I also gave up TV, my phone, my tablet, and the cord to my laptop as it doesn’t work without being plugged in.  
   I was proud of myself going over and beyond what was expected of us so I can silence myself and not be tempted by technology and social media. 
   So Sunday evening I gave up my electronics along with my fellow sister in formation.  
   We all laughed and were excited to get the silent retreat started.  
   This was all done at 6 p.m. Sunday, by 9 p.m., I was pacing my room not knowing what to do with my time.
