Off to the Retreat...

I'm going off for the Passion Sunday weekend to one of my favorite places on earth, the Cistercian Abbey of Our Lady of Spring Bank, near Sparta, Wisconsin.

On the eve of the proclamation of the passion and death of Jesus, we take courage from the vision of his glory:

You are the sacrifice that brings life to those who live under the reign of sin and death.

You are the victor who reigns from the tree of the cross.

You are the King of kings and Lord of lords who conquered death and all its dominions.

Save us, O Lord.
