- Day of Prayer- Virginia Herbers
November 19, 2022
9:30 am - 3:00 pm
“Join us for this day or reflection focusing on a few Gospel characters whose names we will never know—whether it’s the boy with the loaves and fishes, the woman with the hemorrhage, or the ‘good thief’, there are several individuals who interact personally with Jesus and have a significant impact on his ministry—even though we cannot name them. We will explore a few of these characters, reflecting on what gifts they have to offer us for our own lives of faith and discipleship—here and now.
Our world needs the love of Christ. May that love impel us to approach every person, situation, and circumstance in which we find ourselves with a tender and fierce commitment.Let us all live gratefully. Gratitude and grace have the power to transform our world. Let’s start today. Together.
Virginia Herbers – I believe in the power of good, I believe in the moral imperative to do good, and most importantly, I believe that in the end, what will be most lasting in our life history is the good we have done.
My passion is writing and speaking about the intersection of the Christian Gospels and our lived realities. And also chocolate.
But first, the Gospel. And the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I believe there is no more relevant spirituality in today’s world than the spirituality that calls us to live from the Heart. I believe I am called to make reparation for all the ways we (you, me, all of us) break Christ’s Heart. And if I am invited to speak, write, or reflect, odds are pretty good that this will be a theme to which I return again. And again. And again.
This Day of Prayer will be held at The National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows in Belleville, Illinois – call 618-397-6700 to register
