Consoling The Heart Of Jesus: A Do It Yourself Retreat


Michael Gaitley, MIC, has given us a very special gift in his thoughtful and prayerful "Do-It-Yourself Retreat." He brings together several spiritual traditions and blends them in the pattern of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. We will find inspiration in the quotations from the saints that he gathers carefully and in his deep, but humble, understanding of the principles of holiness that they proclaim. This is a good way for a soul to begin the journey in responding to the call to embrace the Divine Mercy of the Lord. CARDINAL THEODORE E. McCARRICK Archbishop Emeritus of WashingtonMichael Gaitley, MIC's book is a form of a weekend retreat accessible to those at the beginning stages of a simple way to holiness. While reading this book, I wished I could have had it in conversing with people of little or practically no faith who yet had a longing for the faith that lies at the core of human existence. These hearts are "restless until they rest in Thee, Lord," and this book guides them on a journey to resting in God. FR. MITCH PACWA, SJ Host of EWTN's "Threshold of Hope" and "EWTN Live"In Consoling the Heart of Jesus, Michael Gaitley, MIC, makes Ignatian spirituality accessible to the rest of us. He has a true gift for moving even small souls closer to Christ. This book is a flexible retreat, a conversation with Christ, and a personal call to greater holiness. The voice of Christ in these pages is one that even this hopelessly distracted wife and mother of eight could hear and respond to. Reading it has been an enormous blessing to me, one that I treasure and will return to often. If you are a small soul, too, Jesus is speaking to you right now. Read this book all at once or in small increments as your life allows and find out what He has to say. DANIELLE BEAN Editorial Director of Faith & Family magazine (FaithandFamilyLive.com)
