We live, in fact, in a world . . . starved for meditation and true friendship. (C. S. Lewis, late British author)

It’s difficult to get away from people, whether virtual or in-person—the meetings and appointments—all the activity of a busy person in our current lifestyles. Even if you go off alone to a retreat, you are still within the reach of the wireless and the buzzing of your smartphone no matter where you are. We really have to make an effort, a plan, perhaps, to be in touch with friends and with God.

Sustain me, and I will be rescued; then I will meditate continually on your decrees. (Psalm 119:117).
