Recollections and Meditations

Monthly Recollections

Days of recollection are a sort of mini-retreat. They are an opportunity to pause and reflect prayerfully on our efforts to live close to Christ and to help others come close to him. They consist of a meditation (a preached period of prayer, led by a priest of Opus Dei), a talk on some aspect of practical Christian life given by a layman, an examination of conscience, and time for personal prayer and an opportunity to receive the sacrament of reconciliation.

The morning of recollection ends with Mass. The evenings of recollection includes Exposition and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament but not Mass.
