From a cold and snowy Mt. Irenaeus, Dan Riley, ofm, invites us to take time to listen -- to listen so that the spirit of freedom and new life enters us so we might re-enter the world and change it. Listening is transformative so we hear the call to follow, trust, get up and go make a difference. To learn more about Mt. Irenaeus Franciscan Retreat, visit www.mounti.com.

Dan's invitation to solitude will help us listen to what's happening in our lives, perhaps leading to new "songs." To learn more about Mt. Irenaeus Franciscan Retreat, visit www.mounti.com.
