Retreat Pictures

Jesus statue

“The picture was taken during my time of silence in a five-day silent retreat in the Jesuit Retreat House in Bukidnon, while I am looking at him in radiance of the morning sunshine. In my moments of silence for 10 minutes, I closed my eyes and find myself in God’s arms. He held me while I sobbed and said in a voice loud to my ears, ‘I love you, my child.’ Thus, I tried to capture the moment in my memory by sketching it in my journal notebook.…It is good to be away for a while from the hustle and bustle of the city. The time of silence is a grace of God. Thank God for the grace; I am learning to ask for it each time I pray.”

I love you - drawing

New Life at the Cemetery

cemetery plants

“I walked by a cemetery that I pass on my evening strolls and noticed a small Cycas palm inside with fresh new leaves unfurling. The curls looked like a playful flourish the Father left behind to remind me how delightful he is. As I took the photo against the backdrop of the headstones, the new life emerging from a place of the dead spoke volumes to the eschatological promise of the Resurrection of the Dead at the end of time.”

Pacific Northwest Pier

pier

“This is where I go when I need my mind to rest, to leave the clamor of my world and listen for God’s whisper in the voices of the gulls, the flight of the eagles, the lapping of the water against the end of the pier. It is one of many ‘sacred’ spots for me here in my home in the Pacific Northwest. I experience God best through my photography, as it helps me focus on the visual gifts God shows me. It is my form of visio divina.”
