March 30-April 4, 2016 was the second retreat given by Fr. Hermes LarrySabud, SM on the overall theme:  “Participating in the Mission of the Spirit” to the Good Shepherd Sisters, this time in our Seminar House, Cebu. There were a total of thirty-six retreatants, from our communities in Mindanao-Visayas plus two Sisters from Luzon with lay women, Marites Uy, blood sister of our Sister John Pasion and Evelyn Sigue, our aspirant.  He gave one talk each day with the overall broken down as follows:  Day One:  The Spirit acts in context of Prayer; Day Two:  The Spirit leads us to Contemplation; Day 3:  The Spirit leads us to Kenosis; Day 4:  The Spirit leads us to Dialogue; Day 5:  The Spirit leads us to Love and Day 6:  The Spirit leads us to Harmony.  Father Larry is quite an accomplished guitarist, playing his compositions for our opening prayer each day.  And at the close of our retreat after our supper, he gave a mini concert of his compositions and other familiar songs.  It was a retreat well-received by all the participants. The tributes shared during the concluding Mass highlighted the appreciation for a deeper knowledge, understanding of the role of the Holy Spirit in the Trinity and in our daily lives as consecrated religious women.
