Advent recollection for me and hubby

Advent is a time when we Catholics prepare for the coming of Jesus in Christmas. As I have mentioned in my previous post, me and hubby attended a recollection. It is intended for evaluating ourselves in a spiritual manner. As Socrates have said, "an unexamined life is not worth living". So that recollection is like examining ourselves. It's also a good time for us to bond spiritually.

A lot of things we have learned from our facilitator Fr. Jose Mari Esquadro:

  • we should let go of our past hurts and we should not allow it to hamper us from growing.
  • we can be likened to a well. in the surface is a very clean water but beneath the water, there's dirt and mud in it. but if we go beyond the water, there is that spring which gives life to the well. as a person, we should not dwell on our woundedness.
  • we can be likened to a mustard seed. the question is..have far have we grown? do we bear fruits?
