Introduced by an excerpt from one of Adèle’s letters and closed with a prayer summarizing Adèle’s thoughts on a subject, each chapter in this little book invites the reader to see the subject with Adèle’s heart and spirit. Each chapter offers, in flowing narrative, excerpts from Adèle’s letters encouraging a deepening in the chosen virtue, devotion or attitude deemed important to her.

A Retreat with Adèle is a spiritual guide which takes readers on a seven-day retreat. The booklet is filled with scripture passages centering on Jesus and Mary; the words of Adèle de Batz de Trenquelléon, Foundress of the Marianist Sisters; and reflection questions which can be used for personal or group activities. It is geared toward anyone making a personal retreat or for someone seeking moments of quiet away from the "busyness" of life.

It reads like a Hollywood thriller--and in fact it includes a DVD, called Where We Were Born--yet it is the essence of our Marianist history, the true story of our origins, filled with moments of joy, betrayal, and uncertainty. And, it clearly depicts the greatness of our Founder, Blessed William Joseph Chaminade. What is it?
