A retreat is a time for withdrawing from the everyday activities of life, and for focussing on the spiritual dimension of life. Retreats have various formats and their length can vary from a few hours up to a few months. The sign is formed by making the sign of the cross on closed lips. It reflects a long-standing practice of keeping silent during times of retreat
