Sorry folks (if anybody out there is reading this blog) -- I realized in the busyness of a new semester at the seminary, I have not blogged here for a while -- I do intend to post regularly -- to share interesting articles that will help us live our vocations to married life -- especially for those who have attended or those who will attend one of our SPIN retreats.

Speaking of SPIN retreats, our next retreat will be January 24-25. Please spread the word to other married couples you know will benefit from this retreat.

And for those who have been on a SPIN retreat, you might think of making a repeat. Since we help lead the retreats, Mary Jane and I have been on several and let me tell you -- it helps to go through it again, to re-learn about the different methods of prayer, to practice them again and then after leaving the retreat to PUT them into practice. So if you have struggled with really incorporating these prayers into your marriage -- a second SPIN retreat might be just the thing you need! Plus, its a nice time apart for a couple to just reconnect with each other and with the Lord.
