It’s that time of summer when I think every mom I know can use a retreat. So we owe a special thanks to Catholic Word for sponsoring that for three lucky winners!
This week’s giveaway:
Pack includes: Retreat Guide Pack, Volume 1 (Unleashing the Power of Pentecost and The One Thing Needed: DVD and Retreat Guide Books)
Through meditations, a conference, and reflection questions, join Fr. John Bartunek, LC, S.Th.D., as he helps refocus your soul while exploring the many facets of our faith. Designed to help you open your heart to Christ, these Retreat Guides will provide the right amount of insight and depth to recenter and recharge your life.
The Retreat Guide Pack includes everything you need – the Retreat Guide Volume 1 DVD and the Unleashing the Power of Pentecost and The One Thing Needed participant books. Nothing is more important than giving time to God – and in today’s world, nothing is more difficult. This Retreat Guide is designed to help. Each of the three meditations will help you focus your soul’s attention on God’s Word, making it easier for you to open your heart to him in prayer, and to hear whatever he wants to say to you. The conference will help you discover afresh the beauty and the power of your faith, as you learn (or relearn) a little bit more about some aspect of our Catholic heritage. (The personal questionnaire will help you apply what you learned in the conference to your own life.)
The Power of Pentecost – Every new liturgical season is a spiritual fresh start, a spiritual clean slate. Are you getting ready? This Retreat Guide will help prepare you. The First Meditation tours the gifts of the Holy Spirit that renew our mind in Christ. The Second Meditation plugs you into the gifts of the Holy Spirit that strengthen and purify our interior freedom. The Conference gets practical, explaining four ways that each one of us can actively cooperate with the Holy Spirit on a day-to-day basis.The One Thing Needed – Today’s world offers us so much! Wherever we go, products and possibilities battle raucously for our attention and our commitment. Amidst all the noise, how can we focus on what really matters? In this Retreat Guide, we will set our sights on the most important aspect of life. In the First Meditation, we will find that Jesus calls this the “one thing needed.” The Second Meditation looks at the relationship between the one thing needed and all the other things that make up our daily life. And the Conference reviews God’s own not-so-secret formula for helping us keep our priorities straight: the Third Commandment.
