An occasion to restart and to start



Spirituality Session at Escorial

21/11/2005: Spain

Of what use is a spirituality session?
It is first of all an occasion to relook at yourself. At our age, perhaps more so than at others, it is good to take a break to evaluate what we have experienced and what we have realised with whom we are and with what we have… and how we wish to live what the Lord always gives us.
It is an occasion to restart… and to start: prayer life, reflection on life, accompaniment in order to conform to the Lord’s plan, etc.
An occasion to reflect on life which must be periodically evaluated. It is good to take a break during the weekend to gauge what we are doing and how we are doing it.
An occasion to establish rhythms of rest, leisure, formation, etc. Isn’t this what we are asked for to better live Marist religious life?

Our documents insist on the importance of on-going formation as a means of revitalising Marist religious life. We believe that, for the Provinces represented here by us, it is a matter of a means of revitalisation.
We are convinced that there is nothing miraculous here, as miracles are not needed to achieve our potential.
If we wish to compare this session, we can say that it is like a prepared table where we find everything in great quantity. Everything depends on the appetite of each person to profit from it.
When we came here – not all with the same expectations – we did not know what this course would bring us. We believe we have created life with what has been offered us.
