The opportunity to experience hope in the search and discovery, the loss and the eventual re-discovery of their own Emmaus is all part of this retreat.

In "River of Dreams." ...Billy Joel sings:

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
From the mountains of faith
To a river so deep
I must be looking for something
Something sacred I lost
But the river is wide
And itís too hard to cross
And even though I know the river is wide
I walk down every evening and I stand on the shor
And try to cross to the opposite side
So I can finally find out what Iíve been looking for
In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the valley of fear
To a river so deep
And Iíve been searching for something
Taken out of my soul
Something I would never lose
Something somebody stole
I donít know why I go walking at night
But now Iím tired and I donít want to walk anymore
I hope it doesnít take the rest of my life
Until I find what it is that Iíve been looking for
