a spiritual retreat cleanses our souls and our bodies. they usually last 3 days and consist of a series of prayer or listening to the retreat master. a walking trip to say the rosary and one to visit the stations of the cross. thereis a lot of time for private prayer or counseling. after 3 days you leave the retreat house. feeling better than you have in awhile you feel the presence of God surrounding you and the spirit guarding ou. it's very hard to describe how it affected you, but your wife and famil will definitely notice a peace surrounding you
Spiritual retreats give us that needed time of absolute peace, away from the world and its sheer obnoxious rancor.
Just a quiet walk in the woods every day can be most restorative. Our token atheist would not understand that peace of mind exists, so he will only try to disrupt peace.
That only makes peace all the more to be sought after and prized!
