Are you hoping to find a July Vocation Discernment Retreat that fits with your working schedule? Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity are offering a July 14-16, 2013 opportunity that may be just what you are looking for.
Thomas of Celano summarizes this experience in The Life of Saint Francis.
It is difficult to leave familiar things behind, and things once instilled in the spirit are not easily weakened. The spirit, even a long time after its early training, reverts to them; and vice, with enough custom and practice, becomes second nature.
Thus Francis still tried to avoid the divine grasp, and, for a brief time losing sight of the Father's reproach while good fortune smiled upon him, reflected upon worldly matters.
