Today my house is going on a "day of recollection." A piece of jargon, perhaps, for a one day retreat. But it's a word I like.

To re-collect, to recall, to re-member. That's always the trick of the spiritual life. To remember who you really are in yourself, in the world, in reference to God. And hopefully to get a glimpse of how God sees you.

We dis-member ourselves through our distractions and sins. Taking time to re-member is critical.
