After the Hermitage

February 4, 2013 5:00 am

I left. And went straight into action – to the meeting of families of our Wrocław Holy Family Center.

I needed that long time spent on the journey (500 km) from the Hermitage to the city of Wrocław in order to slowly adjust. Almost two weeks of living outside civilization (no tap water, no electricity and a fire place to keep warm), but closer to God and simple lifestyle – have let me distance myself from that everyday pursuit for time, for getting all things done, answering e-mails swiftly and so many other details which are so challenging each day.

I’m sorry I’m writing as late as today to thank all of You for being with me, for your prayers, memory and support. I always need it and am happy to receive it 😉 , but believe me: it is particularly necessary during the time of the “desert”, when you have to face your own weakness, so surprisingly great (especially when you’d thought that “I’ve mastered this or that” or “it’s not so tragic with me as it used to be”) – and you also experience God’s love that goes beyond reason.

po pustelni

Thank you for being there with me.

With a heartfelt prayer of gratitude,

Fr Jay
