On the 16th of October the two groups of the Secular Missionary Carmel of Costa Rica, both Tres Rios and Barrio Cuba, met at the retreat house San Ignacio de Loyola in Heredia, to have their annual retreat.

Prayer pedagogy from Francisco Palau, we received a rich theme given by our adviser Sister Arely Ortega who dazzled us and introduced us to the Palautian prayer, to then have moments of desert and meditation Palautian style, with the word of God, charismatic reading and contemplation.

The gift of the Holy Hour was the best in a face-to-face experience with the Beloved, and under the guidance of the prayer teacher St. Teresa of Jesus who invited us to enter our inner castle.

Berny Ulate, a Discalced Carmelite, who joyfully delighted us with a Mass dedicated to St. Teresa of Jesus.

We can only thank God for this experience in the light of such a beautiful charism.

Laura Garita, CMS Costa Rica
