So what will you be doing this Holy Week especially Good Friday? If you answered doing an Earth Walk in an Oratory then you must be attending this retreat house. Yes it is just one more retreat house governed by radical feminists who practice new age garbage like reiki, walk around in labyrinths and invite Jesuit Zen Masters to preach, and have heavily syncretistic leanings. My old joke is that they are called retreat houses is because they have retreated from the faith.
What I can never understand that with all the depth and beauty of spirituality within the faith that people turn to empty spiritualities more akin to empty calories than fulfilling meals. It is like going to a Lexus or other luxury car dealership and to demand to know where the Yugo’s are. There are so many spiritual Esau’s that want their spiritual pottage not realizing that they have given up a very precious birthright. This spiritual which includes such luminaries in prayer as St. Teresa of Avila, St. John of the Cross, Thomas A Kemps, St. Alphonsus Liguori, and so many others should be the starting point. Instead they are ignored or rejected in favor of silliness like reiki. Pottage would have been a better deal.
Just another case of itching ear syndrome "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine"
