This is what you can expect at a typical retreat.
A Comment About SilenceSilence — The solemn regard for silence is one of the most honored and treasured traditions of a retreat. Silence is observed during the entire retreat with the exception of the listed recreation period. At first, some people may find silence a bit difficult, but it is essential so that all retreatants can have time for their own conversation with God. Silence, the Saints tell us, makes audible the voice of God; therefore, silence is a must.
Interior Silence — Used to maintain a personal sensitivity to the movements of the Holy Spirit. At the time of a retreat, the Lord God speaks to you and you must provide silence in which to hear Him.
Exterior Silence — An act of charity, a respect that prevents you from interrupting someone else's conversation with the Lord.
