Most Memorable Experience as a Brother
Brother Anthony recalls a 100-day retreat at Sangre de Cristo which he joined in the 1970s. “I think everyone on that retreat seemed to enjoy it, I must say. A good part of it was these so-called experts who gave of their background and their knowledge and imparted knowledge to us. But also the commingling with all these other personalities, with the priest and the Brothers, and the sharing of ideas and the sharing of prayer times in the chapel. The extending of hands over each person if you want to welcome the Holy Spirit while they prayed over you. That was so beautiful and acceptance of what they suggested. There was no feeling of arms being twisted. It was a very, very pleasant experience.”
