Eucharistic Mountain Retreat

Just watched Life On The Rock at EWTN TV tonight and they had a wonderful program. They interviewed a priest and two lay people (one single and the other married) who are into doing retreats in the mountains (that is, mountaineering). They aim to seek and adore God and His wondrous creation (Nature) by climbing mountains and celebrating the Eucharist there. It's an inspiring experience.

I wish I could someday experience that, too. It's true what one of the guests in the program said. In our cities, there's too much noise, man-made. When we go to the mountains or the forests, we see and experience nothing but God's creation. The solitude that an excursion to nature provides gives us the opportunity to hear the noise inside us, to fight that noise, and to finally hear God's voice inside us.

I was delighted to find out that EWTN has a record of that program at their website. If you want to listen to it, go here (Click on program number 436, "Eucharistic Mountain Retreat for Youth"). I was even more delighted when I learned that the EWTN website have audio files of previous Life On The Rock programs. This show is great. Try to watch it every Saturday night, 11 PM. They occasionally interview very interesting guests and discuss very interesting topics and issues.
