Join us May 20th for an evening retreat about “Our Lady of Conquering Love”

In these times of uncertainty we need and crave what can be relied upon. If you are sick, or caring for one who is ill, stability can seem fleeting and elusive. The love given to us from our Blessed Mother is constant, stronger than we can imagine with our human minds and meant to bring us to her son, our Lord Jesus.

Please take a moment to gift to yourself an evening retreat where we will pray and join in spiritual exercises with Sr. Anne Marie Walsh, SOLT. Please share this opportunity with anyone who could benefit from a gentle reminder about Our Lady of Conquering Love.

Blessed Lent and Group Reminder

Peace and Blessed Lent to you.

I pray that you are able to begin your Lenten season with prayerful thought and preparation. Lent is such a transformational time of year, a time to cleanse us of what holds us back from fully uniting ourselves with Jesus.

Below is a link to the Pope’s Lenten Holy Mass.

I also wanted to remind you that our next spiritual exercise group is this coming Monday, March 11, 2019 at 6:30 pm. Please look to this blog for the upcoming notes if you cannot attend the meeting at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish. You will be able to join us from your phone or computer. May the Lord Bless you abundantly!

Reminder for upcoming group February 11, 2019

Please mark your calendar for our upcoming monthly spiritual exercise group with Sr. Anne Marie Walsh, SOLT.  Her presentation will be on angels. This is a wonderful opportunity to allow the Holy Spirit to enter your heart and help you to gain a better understanding of God’s plan in your life.  I am really looking forward to this presentation and prayer session.

To learn more about our spiritual exercise group, please go to our January presentation by clicking here.

What I am loving about our precious family is that we are growing together, in communion with Christ.  Each of us is in a different circumstance, and even though we are all together as a group, we encounter the Holy Spirit individually, as intended by God, for that moment.

God Bless you all,

Denise

Welcoming Christmas: A New Mission Begins

We are approaching the end of Advent and embarking on the joyous season of Christmas.  We have been preparing our hearts to welcome the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  The greatest miracle, the greatest joy, the greatest gift of all, is given to us from God, the gift of His son Jesus.  Born into poverty to live amongst us, Jesus teaches us that only through Him will we know God, the Father of all creation. He is sent to save us from sin. It is through Jesus that we experience the immense love of God!  I pray that as you read this you feel joyful anticipation for Christmas Eve.  How could we feel anything else?

Well, many of us have been distracted this year, as always, by the commercialism of this most Holy moment in time. Also, many of us are sadly distracted by physical pain and/or emotional distress.  Some of us are overwhelmed by circumstances beyond our control and are having a difficult time feeling joy, and subsequently become even more distressed from the pressure to “be joyful”.  Just remember that you are loved beyond the depths of your imagination, and on Christmas, God sends His perfect Love to you!

I wanted to take this moment to highlight that Facing Our Immortality is expanding its mission.  We are going to be ministering to people with cancer or serious illnesses at Father Woody’s Haven of Hope.  This is a blessing.

It is difficult to imagine that an individual may be struggling with a diagnosis like cancer and be in a condition of homelessness.  If you have struggled with cancer pain or treatment side effects you know all too well how discomforting life can be.  People who have no home must place inside their mindset a posture of incredible strength because they endure so much agony.  They endure rejection, cold, heat, rain, snow, ice, hazards, hunger and incredible loneliness.  Imagine adding cancer to that mix of circumstances.

Prayer is essential for establishing a relationship with God, and in order to pray, one must have access to a quiet place where they can focus.  This is probably very difficult to do if you have no home or place to call your own. Father Woody’s has a beautiful little chapel that radiates a sense of calm, you can feel the Lord’s presence. It is in Father Woody’s chapel that we will complete our prayers and discussions.

The center itself provides critical resources for the homeless population and Margaret Pearson, Director of Operations, really understands the people in need.  She has a loving and trusting relationship with them and is dedicated to making their lives better. Thank you Margaret for giving us this opportunity. Every human being deserves to live a dignified life.

It is through this ministry that we pray for those in need to welcome Jesus into their hearts, to experience His never ending love and for them to begin to desire what God has in store for them.  To learn more about Father Woody’s Haven of Hope, please link here.

The Visit of the Shepherds

Luke Chapter 2, 15-20

15 When the angels went away from them to heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go, then, to Bethlehem to see this thing that has taken place, which the Lord has made known to us.” 16 So they went in haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the infant lying in the manger. 17 When they saw this, they made known the message that had been told them about this child. 18 All who heard it were amazed by what had been told them by the shepherds. 19 And Mary kept all these things, reflecting on them in her heart. 20 Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, just as it had been told to them.

Merry Christmas to you from all of us at Facing Our Immortality!
