I had the great grace to recently attend a weekend retreat for the Society of the Sacred Heart, the Institute of Christ the King’s lay society. (More info here: http://www.institute-christ-king.org/sacred-heart-society/). It was an excellent weekend with conferences, High Masses and quiet time for recollection (yeah, I kept SOME quiet time, believe it or not.)
It was also very good to visit with friends from the other Institute apostolates as well as meet some new members of the Society. I pray that these relationships continue to develop.
The retreat was held at the Mundelein Seminary grounds in Northern Illinois. Here are a few signs of beauty, order and tradition:
