Thursday, the 15th The morning sessions were spent sharing about the exercise of our autobiography: how we experienced reflecting on our own story, writing it, sharing it with an instructor, and sharing it with the group. We also reflected on what we might do with this exercise in the future. And so… Then Antun presided at Mass, and the rest of the day was free.
Friday, the 16th The morning sessions gave us, through Jan and Joe, some fundamental awareness and some very practical information in order to prepare for the great retreat, and to enter it with more benefits. We also gave each other information about where we will do our placements from the middle of January to the end of March. (More information about the placements will be given later.) Barnabas presided at Mass, and we had as usual our haustus. But this time, after organizing the break that we will have after Christmas, we started an animated karaoke in various languages…
Saturday, the 17th A day of rest as usual, but let us mention the Croatian cook Anto, and an improvised haustus around Tamas Forrai S.J., the Hungarian provincial who visited us this evening, and a good surprise: French cheese!
Sunday, the 18th As usual on Sunday: pastoral celebrations and rest. Barnabas cooked, and French cheese added a festive touch to this last spoken supper.
