Jim Manney shares his reflection on today’s retreat:


They devoted themselves to the teaching of the apostles and to the communal life, to the breaking of the bread and to the prayers.
Acts 2:42

The first Christians had a problem. How were they to stay close to their Lord after Jesus had gone from the earth? They did four things: they formed a community, celebrated the Eucharist, worshiped and prayed, and lived according to the teaching of the apostles.

We do the same. We find Jesus in our parishes and homes, in the sacraments, in the prayers we say by ourselves and with our brothers and sisters. Jesus is always with us. We can always find him in our everyday lives.
