“33 Days To Morning Glory” led us to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in Stage One, Part I. In Part II, “Consoling The Heart Of Jesus”, we will learn about God’s Inﬁnite Mercy, and how we can give Him joy, consoling His heart, by accepting His love, and trusting in Him completely. We will discover how suﬀering can actually help us grow spiritually closer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
Even though the Retreat started this past Saturday, February 4th, it is not too late to join us. We will be meeting for 9 consecutive weeks from 9:15AM until 11AM in the Holy Child Center. Each week we will watch a DVD, and then break into small groups for discussion. Participants should also expect to read a Chapter in their “Consoling The Heart Of Jesus” Book each week. At the end of each meeting, you will receive a handout. The handout is designed to help you get the most out of that week’s assigned reading. It also forms the basis for the next week’s small group discussion. (The DVD that you watch each week will then reinforce the reading.)
You are welcome to join this Retreat even if you have not completed “33 Days To Morning Glory” (Part 1) yet, or if you missed the ﬁrst session. Also, you do not have to come every week to be part of this Retreat. If you have access to a computer, then you have the ability to make-up any missed DVDs on FORMED.
If you would like to join us, please call Mari at: (847) 596-2150, or E-mail her at: firstname.lastname@example.org, to register as soon as possible.
If you want to be part of this Retreat, and you still need the “Consoling The Heart Of Jesus” Book, it is available for $4.00.
