A group of Augustinians gather for a few days of retreat in Gozo

Between the 16th and 20th October a group of Augustinian friars gathered together for a few days of retreat at Dar Stella Maris in Żebbuġ Gozo. During these days they had the opportunity to stop for a while from their daily routine and live moments of more silence, prayer and reflection accompanied by Fr Martin Cilia MSSP who animated these days. Fr Martin's reflections presented a clear invitation to reflect on everyone’s present reality, the experience shared with the friars, the centrality of Jesus Christ in one’s life, and the mysteries that bring us closer to Him in our journey of life particulraly in the celebration of the liturgy. On Thursday the brothers also had a beautiful catechesis on the icons of the mysteries of the Rosary located in the Square of the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Pinu. Friday then the Retreat closed with a eucharist celebrated in the same Sanctuary.

These days were also a beautiful opportunity for the friars from different communities to come together and share the beauty of the Augustinian religious life beyond the daily commitments and everything that usually shapes the days with so much activity. The days of the retreat also provide an occasion for a wonderful and calmer experience of prayer and an opportunity of spiritual renewal.
