"To the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ……With Love"
Once again I spend a week of retreat here at Lindenwood in silent contemplation and introspection. Over the past 13 years that I have been coming to Lindenwood for various activities, including retreats and personal spiritual counseling, I have grown both intellectually and spiritually.
The lyrics of an old song - To Sir, With Love - come to mind as I write these words. “How do you thank someone who’s taken you from crayons to perfume.” Though the words do not fit exactly, the sentiment does fit in that words fail to express the level of profound gratitude for the guidance and support provided here.
When I come to Lindenwood I am truly “coming home” for it is here that I have found my tribe.
