The theme of the retreat is St.Frances. Every morning we read a piece of his The Canticle of the Creature and some lines from the scripture, and then we reflect upon this during the day. We walk, we work in the kitchen, we pray, we reflect, and most of the day we are silent. In the afternoon we have break from silence, and can share our thoughts if we want to.
The weather is sunny and nice, just as I have imagined the Tuscan Hills to be in April.
And as always, a perfect way for me to be silent, to reflect, to let my thoughts flow, is to knit.
The second stocking is halfway done.
