Are you busy?

We seem so frightened today of being alone that we never let it happen....We choke the space with continuous music, chatter, and companionship to which we do not even listen.  It is simply there to fill the vacuum.  When the noise stops there is no inner music to take its place. 
-Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Monasteries, hermitages, and retreat centers have been created to that people who wanted to hear the still, small voice of God could turn down the deafening and disquieting cacophony of sound coming from a busy, bustling world. - John Michael Talbot

Is your world to busy and noisy?  Are you looking for that place to find peace and solitude?  Have you been to our retreat center?  Come in and pay us a visit.  We have a labyrinth you can walk for centering or for prayer.  There is also a library if you would like to settle into a good book.  We are more than happy to vist with you and share our Franciscan vision with someone new...maybe that's you!
