"For freedom Christ has set us free." Gal. 5:1
 

Dear Friend of Montserrat,


24091248279_bea879fbed_oOn the first Saturday of June, we celebrated in a very special way, the Sacred Heart of Jesus.  Made known to St. Margaret Mary and her Confessor, St. Claude de Colombiere, S.J., the image of the Sacred Heart reminds us of the Lord's burning love for us.  As St. Claude de Colombiere experienced the Spiritual Exercises and a greater love for Christ, he declared, "I see that I absolutely must belong to him." St. Claude de Colombiere's example of total gift to Christ is what calls us to a greater friendship with Christ and to be able to say as St. Claude, "I have a free heart."  

This upcoming Saturday of Renewal on July 2nd, Fr. Anthony Borrow, S.J. will be discussing Freedom.  He will be discussing freedom in terms of what the Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches: what it is and how it helps us to understand how to respond to the gift of freedom in the way that we live our lives. Register today to join us for the July Saturday of Renewal: Choosing to be Free.  

As a reminder, if you haven't registered for your retreat, there is no better time than the present to experience the Lord's freeing love and mercy.



God's Blessings,

Joseph Hamaty
Director of Development and Communications

What Retreatants Say About Montserrat:
  • "It is a fantastic experience! Go! I grew closer to God and became recharged from going. It's worth the time, money, and effort!"
  • "A retreat at Montserrat is a time to re-introduce yourself to God and a time to let God back into your life."
  • "It's a wonderful way to get away from busy daily life and spend time with God in a beautiful nature setting."
  • "You can't go wrong! Montserrat is so conducive for coming closer to God."
Montserrat is a spiritual home for many and provides a transformative experience to countless retreatants. Consider making a tax-deductible donation to Montserrat Jesuit Retreat House, so we may continue to offer financial assistance to those who desire a deeper relationship with the Lord but cannot afford it, to help us renovate St. Ignatius Chapel and continue to provide a sanctuary where retreatants can reflect on God's Love and Mercy, and to provide for our operational costs, so we may continue to keep the grounds as beautiful as ever. To make a contribution to our Annual Giving Campaign, you may call the office at 940-321-6020 or donate online.
