A retreat in a seaside tourist spot are very different from the silence of the House of the Holy Family in Wisełka.
For example because we haven’t got here our own chapel but we use the church in Trzęsacz. “Our” Holy Masses and Adorations are then attended by other people. People coming alone are quiet – they come to draw from the grace. But it happened also that a group of sumer campers went into the church to visit it. In one moment several dozen people approached the altar and obscured the monstrance with Jesus.
The group was not very much interested in the Holy Sacrament but in the altar, that happens to be very interesting, so they didn;t show much respect for Jesus hidden in the white Host.
I thought then that it is not so obvious at all that if you come to the sdoration, you will actually see the Lord because even if we devote our time for this meeting, other people can disturb. And not only other people, we may be also distracted by our own thoughts.
The group quickly left the church. Some people bowed to Jesus. And in theis moment I felt joy because they could have come in any different moment and yet they chose the time when Jesus was there.
And His blessing flowed upon them although they didn’t expect it.
Greetings from Trzęsacz,
