    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

CSS Catholic Retreat: Rediscover Jesus

On Friday, the 20th  of November, I joined the CSS Catholic team in a very uplifting retreat at the McCabe Renewal Center, an off-campus location. Rides were provided and so was dinner!! 🙂 This is the second retreat I have attended so far and one of the best things about these events is that they are an amazing opportunity of meeting new people and connecting to others who are trying to find their way in life, pretty much like everyone else. As I always say, friends were once strangers.

P.S. Just after the family-styled dinner during the retreat,I made an important discovery. A painting of the peace sculpture The Arising! Here is an excerpt from the Duluth News Tribune on “The Arising” sculpture:

The “Arising” sculpture at Duluth’s Lake Place Park can be said to define an essential part of the personality of our city. Many hands lifting up the dove of peace reflect the many stories over the years that define Duluth as a special, peacemaking place.

“This peace sculpture, “Arising” was built in 1998, meant to encourage Duluthians to denounce violence and celebrate a peaceful existence in our community and in the world. The sculpture resides in Lake Place Park. ”

-This sculpture overlooks the Canal from Duluth. It is titled, “Arising.”  To me it is a reminder that it takes us all to build peace.  Peace needs us, in every season of our lives., to hold hands.
