The daily basics will set you up for a good retreat. If you want to up the intensity, here are some choices:
  • Add a second 30-minute meditation period.
  • Pray the Luminous Mysteries of the Rosary… maybe on a walk?
  • Identify something you most wish were different about your life right now and thank God for using it to call you closer to Him.
  • Think of something good others have said about you; thank God for it and resolve to continue giving that gift more fully and joyfully.
