It was very needed and inspiring. I am hoping I can keep my resolutions and there will be some fruits.
But to the humor .....
My roommate was a young guy. The 2nd day of the retreat he came up to me and whispered: "I forgot to bring shampoo. Would you have any?"
Now, I don't often post hatless pictures of myself, but generally the sides of my head are either shaved or very closely cropped to match my very bald skull.
I looked at this young man and tried very hard not to smile too hard and just shook my head, no.
The funniest part of it all was that I had forgotten to bring a bar of soap. I was using my shaving cream for soap in the shower. I told him of my own forgetfulness and mentioned he was free to borrow my shaving cream! (He declined.)
Oremus pro invicem!
