The stirring sequel to Father Michael Gaitley’s 33 Days to Morning Glory

published just in time for the Jubilee Year of Mercy!

Consider accepting your next invitation on your continuing journey to holiness and sainthood. This summer is a great opportunity to feed your soul, grow in your personal relationship with Jesus and develop a deeper understanding of the endless ocean of God’s mercy. In this Jubilee of Mercy, prayerfully consider this retreat in which we will learn from one of the great Doctors of the Church, St. Therese of Lisieux, and follow her ‘Little Way’ to Merciful Love. Our time together will focus on her spiritual teaching.

You will learn from her how to ask for Merciful Love, proclaim your intention to fight discouragement, to do  little things with great love, and be merciful to your neighbor in deed, word and prayer. You will commit to keep before your eyes your own weaknesses and sin, and trust your contrite heart will please the Lord. It is a great opportunity to come to truly know and believe in your heart the Lord can transform you into a saint.

Merciful love is what the world needs above all!

While the focus of this retreat is Thérèse, the retreat will address different subject matter each week. For week 1, we’ll focus on the backstory to Thérèse’s teaching, and it goes way back to the Garden of Eden, to the patriarch Abraham, and to Mary, the Mother of God. In the 2nd week, we will then explore Thérèse’s Little Way. During week 3, we dive deeper into her teaching on the Offering to Merciful Love. Then, week four, we will cover the topic of darkness as a bittersweet mystery in our own lives as well as in the life of St. Thérèse. During the final week we will review the main teachings of each week and then do final preparation for making the Offering to Merciful Love as a Divine Mercy consecration on St. Maximilian Kolbe’s Feast on Sunday, August 14th.

Continue the journey in this Jubilee of Mercy and know God’s endless Mercy.

Come! Be Holy!
