Double retreat talks: Obedience, Passion, Mass

On March 23-24, 2021, I gave these two afternoon talks to Mother Olga and her Daughters of Mary of Nazareth at St. Joseph Retreat House in Milton. The sisters had a three-day retreat March 22-25. Fr. Bill Neubecker, OMV also gave the morning conferences and homilies.

Conference 1: Obedience

The first talk expands from my Friday reflection on Mary, Obedience & Water. For Lent, the main Scripture passage is Hebrew 5:8-10. Click the link for a handout of Scripture passages and reflection questions.

Conference 2: Daily Mass as an exercise in obedience and love

The second talk looks at the daily Mass as an exercise to grow in love and obedience. The framework is Venerable Bruno’s preparation for the Mas. Click the link for a handout of Scripture passages and reflection questions. For an overview of Venerable Bruno’s method, go here.  For a PDF of the method, click here.  For Fr. Tim Gallagher’s explanation of the steps, buy the book at his website or the Oblates’ bookstore.
