The silent Retreat on the First Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius focused my mind on where I am in life at the moment, spiritually, and where perhaps I would like to be heading to arrive safely at the next life – ‘up there’!.
During the Retreat, we contemplated the gifts of the Spirit and the works of Mercy, and then developed a plan for making progress on these fronts. The messages in the new stained glass windows in the chapel of Riverview resonated with me and reinforced all that I was trying to absorb. I have used pictures of these as the central focus for this video.
Also, I took the opportunity of admiring God’s Creation in the beautiful gardens and bushland of the Riverview College. It is situated on the banks of the Lane Cove River with spectacular views back over the City of Sydney. I knew from my last Retreat to take my camera. This video shows some of the beauty that is to be found while,out walking each day, even in winter.
