What an incredible grace to have spent the last weekend praying and laughing with 70 men on a Catholic Men’s retreat. The doors that opened, the graces that poured were beyond joyful!!
We also had a blessing of our new Saint Paul of the Cross statue. Bishop George Sheltz was here to do the blessing.
Flowers so often are a gift to show our love to one another.
Saint Paul of the Cross says that, “The Passion of Christ is the greatest and most stupendous work of Divine Love. The greatest and most overwhelming work of God’s love.”
This day with the work of Mercedes Luna, head of hospitality here at the retreat center, Christ Crucified was bedecked with beautiful flowers reminding us of the gift of His love for us.
A great big thank you to all the benefactors that helped us to fund this beautiful statue that will be the centerpiece of our gardens for decades to come! Special thanks to Mike Kaney the artist for bringing Saint Paul of the Cross, and his mission to life for us here at Holy Name Passionist Retreat Center.
