    Fr. John Lanzrath
    The Fruit of Silence is Prayer: Saint Teresa of Calcutta's Way to Holiness
    Fr. John Lanzrath presents this very popular silent retreat centered around Saint (Mother) Teresa.

    “Speak Lord, for your servant is listening.” -- 1 Samuel 3:10 

    The prophet Samuel enjoyed a distinct advantage over people of the modern age when God called upon him in the middle of the night to take up a special mission. There were no cells phones, iPods, TV sets or radios to distract him from listening. Even so, it took Samuel awhile to figure out that God had something important to say—and that he had to listen.

    During this special silent retreat weekend, the Spiritual Life Center will be enveloped in silence to allow God to speak—and allow us to listen. The retreat is inspired by Mother Teresa herself, who spoke often of the need for silence and discernment in one’s life.

    There will be no talking during the weekend unless necessary, including mealtimes. Retreat master Fr. John Lanzrath will give a series of short conferences, each less than 30 minutes in length. Retreatants will then be free to pray and reflect in silence upon the themes offered. Two short movies on the life and times of St. Teresa of Calcutta will be shown, but these offerings will be optional.

    Those who come are asked to leave cell phones, iPods and any other electronic devices at home. The silence of the retreat will end during the noon meal on Sunday that follows the Lord’s Day Liturgy.
