HOLY SOLITUDE
by Mother Heidi Haverkamp

Our faith is full of heroes who experienced God powerfully in solitude. From Hagar and the Hebrew prophets to Jesus in the wilderness to Francis of Assisi and Catherine of Siena, we see how escape from the toil and temptations of daily life can open our eyes, ears, minds, and hearts to the still, small voice of God. In the vast desert or a tiny room, solitude-frightening for some and a welcome reprieve for others-is far from an antisocial self-indulgence but rather is an opportunity for transformation and empowerment to serve God's people ever more deeply.

Copies of Holy Solitude are available in the Parish Office for $14.00 or can be found on amazon.com

You are invited to spend an overnight two day retreat at the St. James Center with St. Paul's own Mother Heidi for a time of "solitude together" as Lent begins, with a focus on both time alone and time together in conversation. You can choose either 
February 18-19 or February 22-23. Registration forms will be in the Parish Hall or you can register on line.
