  1. Matthew Says:

    Amen. Amen. Amen. A thousand times Amen! Thank you so much for this, and I agree it is a very difficult thing to achieve. I am so very happy that your retreat is going well for you, and most of all, I am grateful to God for having called you to be worker in His field. PAX et vivat Iesus!

  2. Awesome post! Thank you, Br. Dan!

  3. These words are Spirit and Life. I would not describe them so much as ‘difficult’, becasue that involves a struggle or battle in which I have to achieve victory. Rather I occassionally experience this form of humility as a true gift, one in which I learned to appreciate (and desire) more and more. Thank you for another gift!
