Focolare NY retreat

On one of the long breaks from school, I went on a retreat/congress with the Gen of the Focolare Movement. It was both refreshing and restful. It was held in Luminosa, which was utterly beautiful.





Inside the Gen house, there was a large chess set.




Hello!

This is the main church inside the Luminosa grounds.










Tito Paul giving us a tour of the grounds.






We were laughing at the street names. Imagine people asking where you lived "At Union with God Lane" 






I wanted to take this home.







These scrolls contain the names of people involved in the development of Luminosa.







Then we played soccer and it was brutally fun.





















Paul!
























Movie night. We voted on the movie we would watch.





The next day was a video conference with Marius.











Group shot.















Women's house of the Focolare.








Chiara in the Philippines.





Lovely candle holders.












We also played pingpong. Good times.
