WS IV – The Joy of Walsingham: Mary, Model of Thanksgiving – Residential or ZOOM

Starts: Friday 10 September 2021 @ 5pm
Ends: Sunday 12 September 2021 @ 2pm

The forth in a series of retreats on Walsingham Spirituality and discovering from Mary herself how to receive and live the gift of the Divine Will with a spirit of thanksgiving so central to the message of Walsingham.

Retreatants can participate from the comfort of their homes via zoom or in Dowry House where personal accompaniment from one of the sisters will also be on offer.

Jesus made Mary the “Queen and Mother of the Kingdom of the Divine Will”. Mary was the third person (after Adam and Eve) to be given the Gift of the Divine Will (from the moment of her Immaculate Conception) Jesus, in His humanity, was the fourth Person to posses the Gift of the Divine Will. Next was Luisa Piccaretta and everyone after her who will say “Yes!” to His Gift.

Our Lady gave Luisa 31 lessons on the Kingdom of the Divine Will. With this Gift, what one would strive for in years can be accomplished in just one day! Over the weekend we will look at some of these and how the Fiat of Our Lady, remembered at Walsingham, it enables us to experience the joy she promised to all those who visit her shrine at Walsingham.

“Oh Mary, teach us always to say Yes to God, every moment of our life.

Oh Mary, teach us always to give THANKS to God, every moment of our life.’
