Ave Maria!

Cardinal Raymond Burke gives the opening reflection for the 2015 Priests' Retreat themed "Holy Priesthood: Sacrament of Christ's Pastoral Charity". This talk is on the need for priests to make retreats, following the example of Jesus Christ. Topics covered include:

  • Retreat is not self-indulgent but to proclaim that the priesthood is not my own

  • Ultimate retreat was in the garden of Gethsemane

  • Must take time away

  • Things to do to be holy priests.

  • Praying the liturgy of hours

  • Yearly retreat

  • Be thankful for vocation understanding

  • Importance of the mission of salvation

  • Recall the time you were ordained.

  • Not my own will but him who sent me. Obedience

  • Accompany Our Lord up to the time we go to live with him in heaven, the victory of eternal life

  • Follow the example of Mary, the first disciple, and the holy priests that have gone before us.
