“I thought the rosary was for old ladies and funerals,” Calvillo said.
His mindset began to change when he attended a retreat at the Benedictine Sisters of the Good Shepherd Monastery outside of Rio Grande City – reluctantly, Calvillo’s wife Valerie pointed out.
“He was a bit hesitant,” Valerie Calvillo said. “He didn’t know what to expect.”
Going to the retreat proved to be a life-changing experience.
“As we were praying the rosary at the retreat, I saw something that I had never seen before,” David Calvillo said. “I felt this incredible connection.”
