And Jesus said,I am with you always, until the end of the age.” Mt 28:20

At the annual August 2015, MRCC board retreat, several members of the staff and board were participating at a 7am prayer service on the Meramec River. A board member took this picture and its sun-created cross figure on the water reminds us that the spirit and hope of the resurrection rises every day over the Marianist Retreat and Conference.

Compassion…is an understanding of the unity of all things. It is an awareness that I is not separate from thou, that whatever is happening to the planet, or to another person, is happening to me. Compassion is total empathy, an absolute sense of connection.

Paul Rezendes

Within you there is a stillness and a sanctuary
to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself.

Herman Hesse

Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself and know that everything in this life has a purpose. There are no mistakes, no coincidences. All events are blessings given to us to learn from.

Elizabeth KA?bler-Ross
