clean heart for the old man

September 20, 2008 Leave a comment

We started a “Day of Recollection” silent retreat last night with one talk followed by a Holy Hour with Benediction, Adoration & Confession.  The leader of the retreat is Fr Oscar Alonzo, a wise religious priest who teaches at Cardinal Gibbons High School (among many other things).  Here are some notes I jotted down for reflection:

1. When plans change, take it as God’s providence.

2. “Through Him, with Him, and in Him …”

3.  Behind every great man is a great woman.

4.  Pray for a “clean heart” for the “old man.”

5.  Heart is driven by (1) power of love or (2) love of power.

6.  As we reflect on our vocational journey, identify WHO was an instrument of your vocation? 

7.  Use Scripture models: Abraham (Gen 12+), Moses (Ex 3), Isaiah (6), Jeremiah (1), and Mary (Luke 2)
