By way of the treasure trove that is the Catholic Educator's Resource Center, comes this chapter from the book I Believe in Love: Personal Retreat Based on the Teaching of St. Thérèse of Lisieux, by Fr. Jean C.J. D'Elbee.
For a mom, the idea of going on a retreat is often an outlying dream. But, this kind of retreat I can do (eventually.) This book is going on the wish list.
Another "retreat-in-a-book" that I loved was Fr. John Hardon's Retreat with the Lord: A Popular Guide to the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius of Loyola. So many gems to be found there, such as the quick-but-perfect discernment guideline I mentioned here.
