Hua Hin, Thailand, 20 March 2023 -- The Salesian Confreres of Thailand, Cambodia and Laos held their annual spiritual retreat from 12-18 March 2023 [1st batch] and from 19-25 March 2023 [2nd batch] under the theme “The Gift of Fiedelity and the Joy of Perseverance”. This was preached by Archbishop Francesco Panfilo S.D.B., Archbishop Emeritus of Rabaul, Papua New Guinea, at the Salesian Retreat House in Hua Hin, Prachuabkhirikhan.
Each year, the Salesians would hold their spiritual exercises for 6 days to replenish their zeal for the ministry and revisit their relationship with the Lord.
The retreat focused on the fidelity of the Salesian vocation. The preacher led the retreatants to reflect on the experiences of life enlightened by the Word of God, the Salesian Constitutions, Church Documents, lives of the saints and the experiences of the preacher himself.
Aside from the conferences, the retreat gives time for personal meditation, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, the way of the cross and personal prayer. At the end of the retreat, the Salesians renewed their Salesian consecration during the Mass.
