MONTHS ago, I Father Anthony a classmate and and now Pastor of St. Church in Clarksville, to give the retreat 00ntas 892-4536 62 West Arkansas 72455 for our priests. Since he had never done this, there was hesitancy on his part. I never doubted that he was capable of giving a fine retreat. He consented to do so and arrived in our city on Friday before the retreat. We enjoyed a relaxed weekend which in- cluded the beautiful or- dination of Don Althoff to the priesthood. On Sunday evening, Father Sauerwein opened the retreat at St. John's Center. Our priests came from all parts of the diocese. Immediately, he established a relationship with them as a brother, as a priest and as a friend. Throughout the days of retreat, he repeatedly brought us back to our life of prayer, our devotion to the Mass and the sacraments, our love for the Blessed Mother. Universally, our priests ac- claimed this opportunity to listen to Father Sauerwein and have an opportunity to refresh themselves spiritually as priests of the living God. The retreat came to a con- clusion with Mass on Thur- sday morning. Then many of the retreatants along with Father Sauerwein and me went to Rebsamen Golf Course for rest and relaxation.

Thursday evening, we enjoyed supper at the Cathedral so that Father Sauerwein could have an opportunity to meet Father Quinn and Father Joe Mur- phy. On Friday, I brought Father Sauerwein with me to Carmel for Mass. He was good enough to give the sisters a homily on the Blessed Mother. During the day, Mr. Clint Boshears brought us to the Pleasant Valley Golf Course for a game of golf. In the evening we went to St. Anne's Parish where the youth of the parish asked for a liturgy to memorialize Father James Patrick McDonnell on the occasion of his 40th an- niversary to the priesthood. Father Sauerwein again because he knew Father Jim, gave the homily. ON SATIJRDAY, J. Dan Bailey and Dr. Robert An- derson were kind enough to take us to the Country Club for a game of golf. In the evening, I offered Mass in my home and brought friends in to become acquainted with my classmate and friend. In- cidentally, Father Sauerwein and I entered the first year high school minor seminary in Baltimore in September 1937 and have remained friends since then. After offering Mass privately in my home chapel on Sunday, we tried Reb- samen Park Golf Course one more time. Then, Charles and Martha McNeil hosted supper for us in the evening. 1 TAKE this opportunity to express my gratitude to Father Sauerwein for giving the retreat; to Father Schneider and his committee for making all of the im- mediate preparations for the retreat; in a particular way, I thank Father Duerr, a priest of Baltimore, a classmate and friend. For three years he has suffered in great pain from cancer in his bones. He pledged all of his suffering during the retreat days for God's richest blessings to descend upon us. When the retreat ended, Father Sauerwein and I called him and were able to speak to him in his home. The month of June, always dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, is a time for us to renew within us a spirit of love, understanding and forgiveness among the members of our family and our friends.
