Saint Francis of Assisi
Celano, Second Life - 196
Portiuncula Hermitage in Jerusalem, Ohio
Dear Christian Brothers and Sisters,
The initial reaction to a weekend of silence, fasting and prayer was mixed as I revel in the world’s flash of media and the madness of twenty-four hour news. I feared boredom and the lack of external stimulus. But God is good, and He provided plenty for me. Walks in the woods and fields, silent prayer and meditation, communal prayer with my Brothers in Christ, prayers of intercession, and theological discussion on the travel to and from Jerusalem, stimulated my spirit far more than my flesh has ever been stimulated.
It is my hope that the Portiuncula will become a haven for those who need a fresh touch of God. I will return soon to restore my soul with peace.
Please prayerfully consider joining me "FOR THE LOVE OF GOD" in supporting the Portiuncula Retreat Center by simply contributing $5.00 $10.00 $15.00 or more a month.

Yours In Christ,
Dr. Tom Ringenberg
