Got my Carmel Retreat Schedule today. This sort of jumped out at me.
7:00 - 7:15 PM Friday (BEGIN SACRED SILENCE)
6:30 - 7:20 PM Saturday
Question Box – silence broken;
related to prayer & conference
12:00-1:00 PM Sunday
(END SILENCE) ~ Lunch
So we're not talking to anyone during the retreat, not even during our meals? Is it even possible for "Chatty Abby" to go 46 hours without talking to anyone? Um, particularly when I'm around my dearest Carmelite friends?
This is going to be interesting--but I'm up for the challenge.
