I will be leaving for a month-long silent (or at least silent-ish) retreat tomorrow at 6:00 am, in order to prepare for my consecration which is coming in January. The contemplative Sisters of St. John have graciously allowed me to make my retreat at one of their houses.
Naturally, I will be taking a break from the Internet in general and blogging in particular. Posting will resume around August 8. During the interim, I would very much appreciate the prayers of any readers I may have! (And I will certainly remember all of you who have requested my prayers.)
