Franciscan Footprints

Our February Retreat just ended on Wednesday, the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes and World Day of Prayer for the Sick.

Retreat started with a snow storm but Father James Kubicki, SJ warmed our hearts.  A quote he used as a main element of the retreat was from St. Diadochus.  "The measure of your love for God depends on how deeply aware you are of God’s love for you."

Father has a deep and evident devotion the the Sacred Heart and is the National Director of the Apostleship of Prayer.

I'm afraid I don't have time to tell you much more.  We are in the midst of getting ready for the big open house on Sunday.  The Open House for the Year of Consecrated Life was actually put on the front page of the Peoria Journal Star last Sunday, so we really have no idea how many people may come.  We're are preparing for a flood. :) And I have two visitors right now.  (Special thank you to all those who are praying for vocations to our community. And thank you, Father, for your kind blog post.)

I hope to see many of you at the open house this weekend.
