The present-day Church seems to repeat with ever greater fervor and with holy insistence: “Come, Holy Spirit!” Come! Come! “Heal our wounds, our strength renew; On our dryness pour your dew; Wash the stains of guilt away; Bend the stubborn heart and will; Melt the frozen, warm the chill; Guide the steps that go astray.”
-Saint John Paul II, quoting the Sequence for Pentecost
This weekend, a unique experience will be offered for those who carry with them the pain of their parents’ divorce. If you find yourself in this situation, consider joining us at the Saint John Paul II National Shrine. If you do not carry this burden, tell a friend who does, and please pray for all of those on this Recovering Origins retreat.
Saint, John Paul II, Pope of the Family, Pray for Us!
