CSW 2011It’s been 3 days ago since I attended CSW last Saturday at Tagaste Retreat House and I can still feel the intense of the retreat. Ican say is, this retreat is a very memorable one to me.

The night before the CSW, my mother and I have a quarrel and it’s really heartbreaking for me because I’m going on a retreat having a problem with my family.It’s a big burden for me, so big that i got scared that I might don’t go anymore. But God is really great. He made a way for me to go on.

During the opening worship on the first day, I cried because I’m thinking of my mother who was still mad at me that time. And during the first session, i got struck to Father Gustilo’s talk especially when he mentioned something about family and I cried again. When Father Gustilo brought the Blessed Sacrament, I can’t help crying because of the guilt that I felt that time. And after I confessed, I just realized that God let me attended the retreat because He has something for me and that something is the forgiveness that I need that time for what I have done. Indeed, God is really good. He really made a way for me. When i went home, my mother is not mad at me anymore and I thank God for this.

Truly, God is a radical God.No matter how many times we fail, He does not counting on that. He is counting on how many times we stand. All throughout the retreat, I really enjoyed staying in Tagaste together with my fellow brothers and sisters form different provinces in Southern Luzon, giving thanks and praise to God and learned new lessons from the 3 sessions and 2 workshops.

I want to take this opportunity to thank my brothers and sisters in SFL Cabuyao for their prayers and for paying my registration fee. And I want to thank God for all the things He has done for me. I hope I inspired you on my sharing. Before i finish my sharing, please pray for me to attend WSC on March 2012 because I really want to attend there despite of my busy schedule in school. I’ll appreciate that very much. Thank you for reading my sharing and may the Lord God bless each and everyone of us.
