  1. I'm sure it was a very uplifting and rewarding retreat. Our last retreat was at Christ in the Desert, a Benedictine Monastery in Abiqui, New Mexico. The majestic scenery of nearby Ghost Ranch so inspired the paintings of Georgia O'Keeffe. It was a silent retreat except for when we joined the monks at Mass and in chanting at regular hours around the clock. I found it so difficult not to talk when a Beaver slapped its tail in the nearby creek and a Lazuli Bunting sang just overhead in a majestic old Cottonwood.
