Too busy or too far away to join a serious and full-blown retreat this Holy Week?

All you need is to set aside about 45 minutes ANYTIME each day
on Holy Thursday, Good Friday, or Black Saturday—at your convenience.

Carve some time out of your usual routine the next three days for yourself and the Lord.

GOD IN THE DUNGEONS
Lenten Questions about Life, Death, and Other Things in Between

This Online Holy Week Retreat is an opportunity for you
to pray not only over Scripture and Church teachings,
but also—and just as importantly—about your own life.

Dungeons are not exactly the first place we go to when we want to look for God.
We expect to find Him in churches and the other “holier” places of our lives.
But that’s what Lent tries to correct about our impressions of God.
In the mysteries of Lent, God enters precisely the “dungeons of our lives”
—the deepest, darkest experiences of human pain and suffering—
because He wants us to find Him there.

He invites us to join Him in praying over the dungeons of our lives.

Preparing for the Retreat…

Holy Thursday: The Dungeon of Betrayal

Good Friday: The Dungeon of Abandonment

Black Saturday: The Dungeon of Failure

Extravagant displays of devotion to Mary gets curtailed as world culture emphasizes the rational, scientific and technological aspects of life. There seems to be no more time for the more affective expressions of religion.

  Then, after a while, people get fed up with the absolutely rational and logical culture, and rediscover religion and the affective part of the human soul and its needs.

  And Mary is one of those.

Love and support for Pope Francis
The Church is certainly a human and historical institution with all that entails, yet her nature is not essentially political but spiritual: the Church is the People of God, Holy People of God making its way to encounter Jesus Christ. Only from this perspective can a satisfactory account be given of the Church's life and activity.

  Christ is the Church's Pastor, but his presence in history passes through the freedom of human beings; from their midst one is chosen to serve as his Vicar, the successor of the Apostle Peter.

  Yet Christ remains the center, not the Sucessor of Peter: Christ, Christ is the centre.

A Million Roses for the World
A gift of love, faith and goodwill from the people of the Philippines. Pope Pius IX once said: “Give me an army praying a million rosaries a day and we will conquer the world.” We are not out to conquer the world…but to save it for God to whom it rightly belongs.
