The discernment retreat of the young ladies from May 11 to 13, 2012 was held in the Alberione Oasis, Antipolo City. Eight young ladies from Ormoc City, Manila, Marikina and Antipolo City joined in the retreat.

They began their two-full day journey with the Lord in the afternoon of May 11. Sr. M. Martha gave them the orientation at 6 o’clock in the evening to prepare them for their personal encounter with the Lord in silence, prayer and listening to the conferences of their retreat guide, Fr. Efren Reyes, a Missionary of Jesus (MJ).

For two days in the morning they had Lauds, conference and Eucharistic Celebration with Fr. Reyes. The conference of Fr. Reyes was focused on the theme: “Mary, Our Model In Discerning Our Heart’s Desires.” After the conference they used to have healthy break and be by themselves in the place most convenient for them to reflect on the talk of their retreat guide.

The afternoon was spent for adoring Jesus Master in the Eucharist with Sr. M. Martha and M. Geraldine. It was Sr. M. Martha who guided them during their moment of intimacy with The Eucharistic Master. Fr. Reyes availed himself to them either for confession or personal encounter with him during their free time. At five o’clock they celebrated Evening Prayer with Sr. M. Geraldine as the prayer leader. They all gathered together for the prayer activity in the evening after supper in the session hall and in the garden. On the last day of their retreat right after their adoration at two o’clock in the afternoon they had sharing of their joys, difficulties and consolations during their retreat.

All of them were more than happy and contented with the conferences of Fr. Reyes and their personal encounter with him, activities of the day, their communion with one another in prayer and at table when they partook of the meal in silence. The atmosphere was pervaded with silence that helped them a lot to be in touch with themselves and listen to their heart’s desires and God’s desire for them. They felt so much the presence of Mary, Our Lady of Silence and our Mother who is our sterling example in following the will of God. They came to the Oasis on May 11 and came out of it refreshed and invigorated physically and spiritually on May 13, the very day we celebrated Mother’s day.

As these young ladies ended their two day retreat which is not the end at all but a beginning of journeying hand in hand with the Lord and one another may they have the same courage of Mary to make a leap of faith and say, “Yes, Lord. I will follow you.”
