    Hello Friends! I have been praying with our other JP2FNE intercessors that you receive many graces from this retreat. May this retreat just be the beginning for you and us to more deeply abide in Christ, the Vine. May we, together, bear much fruit that will last until eternity.

      Reinforced my desire to grow in, my thirst for a deeper, more intimate relationship with Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, that is with the Trinity. By God’s grace, entering more fully into the life of the Trinity, sharing to a greater degree the divine nature.
      May God bless each one of you in the power and fire of the Holy Spirit!!

        Marilyn, I praise God for deepening your desire for a deeper participation in the life of the Trinity, which is God’s own desire for all of us.

        Amen! Thank you for the blessing! Come, Holy Spirit!

    I was very moved by the whole retreat. David is a very effective host and Tim is a dynamic speaker who clearly has a mission to spread the love of God and His calling to his children.
    There is much to reflect on in these talks, so I’m happy that this will be available for a few days to allow a second viewing. It is very beautiful!

    Thank you JP2FNE for making this available during our shelter in place. It is an amazing thing to know that God thirsts for me!

    The Talks 1-3 were very inspiring. It lifted me up spiritually thru prayers that was being said in the Opening Prayer, Open/ Close Prayers by Tim. Tim is a dynamic speaker. I was touched by Tim’s message: Open, invite, allow and choose our all knowing God to enter into relationship. Have a conversation with Him.Entrust your life completely to Him. He has plans to transform our life. God thirst for me. Thank you for allowing me to listen to these talks. They are very inspiring and uplifting to my mind, spirit and heart. It was indeed a very beautiful experience. Thank you!

    Very enlightening talks! The reflection questions help me ponder on my responses for future reassessment. I especially like to ponder the questions: what is God calling me to do at this time and to reflect where and how in my life I can live my mission. These questions hopefully will lead me to a spiritual journey closer to Christ in union with Mother Mary as well as to those closer to me and to all peoples I interact with.

    Thank you JP2FNE for all your work! God bless everyone.

    Thank you JP2FNE. The speaker appears to be really sincere and on fire for our Lord. Inspirational to hear his words and suggestions for doing what we, as Christians should be doing. What sticks in my mind was what he said about the conversation he had with his spiritual advisor when he was 18 and considering becoming a Priest. The spiritual advisor reminded him his response was what we as believers are all to be doing, knowing, serving, and loving our Lord and bringing other souls to do the same. Then the advisor asked again but why do you want to be a Priest. It’s a wake up call to all believers that we should be doing this no matter what our vocation in life is.

      Nicely put, Sam! It’s beautiful to think that God wants to use each one of us for the building up of his Kingdom here on earth. How humbling!
