Spiritual retreat in preparation for Christmas

From the 29th of November to the 2nd of December we postulants from Montefalco went for a retreat in preparation to the advent and the Christmas time. The place chosen was Poggio Bustone, a small village in the Reatina valley, because S. Francesco here asked, and obtained, God’s forgiveness of all his sins; then we met the postulants from Palatino and all together we attended the meditations led by three different friars, concerning about the consecrated life.
In these days we visited also Greccio, the small village where S. Francesco made the first nativity, and Fontecolombo, where the saint wrote the rule of the order.
We experienced the love of Jesus in different ways: contemplating the creation, listening to S. Francesco’s rule, reading and meditating the words of Jesus and, last but not the least, worshiping the little child in the manger.
With the spirit full of joy we wish you a good Advent for a Holy Christmas.
