“In the silence of the heart God speaks. If you face God in prayer and silence, God will speak to you. Then you will know that you are nothing. It is only when you realize your nothingness, your emptiness, that God can fill you with Himself. Souls of prayer are souls of great silence.”
- Saint Teresa of Calcutta
We believe that God wants to be present to each of us in a most profound way.
We believe that the "noise" of the world is making it more and more difficult for us to hear Him and allow space for Him.
Scripture says that: “He would withdraw to deserted places to pray.” (Luke 5:16)
We believe we have been called to provide a place of silence, solitude, and simplicity where Catholic religious, laity, and those of sincere faith can empty themselves of the world's distractions and be filled with Him.
We invoke the constant intercession and protection of St. Joseph, who has been instrumental in every step of this vision and mission. Our prayer is: “Saint Joseph, father, man of silence, who was always present and obedient to God, we ask you to intercede for every retreatant who comes, that in this silence they may encounter the Father’s Heart.”
