Divine Retreat center : Day 4


Today it was supposed to be the day where everyone is supposed to receive the gift of the holy spirit. Frankly, I was just too tired and overwhelmed after having seated myself from morning till evening on the same seat for the last 4 days. It felt like I was impaled on a  javelin.

Highlight of the day was I learned 2 new Jewish words

Shalom Aleichem : Peace be upon you.
Aleikhem shalom: Upon you be peace.

Supposedly predates the popular Arab greeting of Asla Malaikum and Malaikum Salam by a 1000 years.
